In most cases, the Earth about once a year, but for this night, you will see it in a closer distance of 930,000 miles.
In a fast moving space object, which occurs on the approximately 4.65 million miles is to be considered as “dangerous”, be careful with the space agencies.
The asteroid is similar in size to the Chelyabinsk meteorite that exploded over Russia back in 2013.
The impact of the broken windows, and injured more than 1,000 people.
