Jet Propulsion Laboratory Has told that the name of this giant asteroid is 1989 JA. Its size is 3,400 feet i.e. it is 1.8 kilometer wide. It is classified as an asteroid of the Apollo category. If you want to understand it more easily, then the asteroid moving towards the earth is twice as big as Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
However, there is nothing to worry too much about. It has been told in the reports that even when this asteroid will be closest to the Earth, the distance between it and the Earth will be 40 lakh 24 thousand 182 kilometers. It is estimated to come close to the Earth on May 27, but this date may change if the speed of the asteroid’s arrival accelerates. This asteroid of Apollo category is likely to pass safely through the earth. It is believed that no effect of this will be seen.
Asteroids falling in the Apollo category pass close to the Earth and their size is also large. It is believed that in the event of their collision with the earth, there can be a lot of damage. According to reports, this sight can be seen through binoculars. Again such an incident will be seen in the year 2029.
Earlier in the month of March, an asteroid of about 1.3 kilometer size had passed close to the Earth. This asteroid, named 138971 (2001 CB21), was also considered potentially dangerous. It passed near the Earth from a distance of 4.5 million.
