The quick asteroid, dubbed Asteroid 2019 KG3, flew by today in a “Earth Close Approach” trajectory. The news comes less than two weeks after the asteroid has been started flying across the solar system on May 2-9. NASA said KG3 streaked beyond our home planet from the early morning hours Tuesday, June 11. And in accordance with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California, the distance stone ’s closest flyby happened around 7.15am UK time or 2am Eastern.

NEOs are typical comets and asteroids, which orbit the Sun in the space of 1.3 astronomical units.

In the event the asteroids orbit the Sun out of a small space of 120.8 million kilometers (194.5 million km) NASA classifies them ldquo;Near-Earth Objects” or NEOs.

NASA said: “because they orbit the Sun,” Near-Earth Objects can periodically approach near Earth.

“Notice that a ‘close’ passage astronomically might be very faraway in human terms: millions or even thousands of kilometres. ”
