NASA currently knows that there are more than 1.1 million asteroids in the solar system. Thousands more are discovered every month. Particular attention is paid to the so-called near-Earth asteroids, which do not move around the Sun like most asteroids in the asteroid belt, but come close to the Earth’s orbit and therefore can also be dangerous for our planet. In this article, we give you an overview of all the near-Earth asteroids that have reached the closest point in their orbit today.
On Monday, April 11, 2022, a total of 13 asteroids will reach their nearest stop during the day, including 1 potentially more dangerous asteroid.

The largest asteroids close to Earth today

“395207 (2010 HQ80)” With an estimated diameter of 311 to 695 meters, it is currently the largest asteroid near Earth. “395207 (2010 HQ80)” makes its closest approach to Earth at 07:04 today. The second largest asteroid near Earth is “(2006 UR216)” Its diameter is estimated from 272 to 608 meters. “(2021 GK4)” Today it ranks third among the largest near-Earth asteroids (66 m – 147 m).

This asteroid is especially close to Earth today

The closest thing to Earth today is an asteroid “(2022 GG3)”. It approaches our planet at 04:55 am at a distance of up to 0.6 million km.
The asteroid closest to us so far without hitting Earth was “(2020 QG)”. On August 16, 2020, it flew over Earth at a speed of about 44,000 km / h, only 3,000 km away. Coming from the direction of the sun, experts didn’t see it coming: it was spotted just 6 hours after it flew. It probably wouldn’t have caused much damage to the ground even if it had collided. Due to its small size, only 3 to 6 meters in diameter, it is assumed that it would have burned up in the atmosphere if it got close.

Potentially dangerous asteroids near Earth today

Potentially hazardous asteroids are those that come close to 0.05 AU (about 7.5 million km) and have an absolute brightness of 22 mag or less. Therefore they are considered large enough (at least about 140 meters in diameter) to cause significant damage in the event of an impact. About 20 percent of near-Earth asteroids are classified as dangerous.
Today there is one potentially dangerous asteroid near Earth: “395207 (2010 HQ80)”.

11 cruisers orbit near the earth

Asteroids that cross the Earth’s orbit are also called orbiting cruisers. Asteroids of a near-Earth type Apollo Crossing the Earth’s orbit from outside, near-Earth type asteroids Aton Crossing the Earth’s orbit from within. Today, a total of 11 cruisers orbit around the Earth approaching our planet.

  • Apollo asteroids near Earth today: “395207 (2010 HQ80)”, “(2006 UR216)”, “(2012 UX136)”, “(2013 GK69)”, “(2014 JR25)”, “(2020 VB3)”, ” (2021 GC) “,” (2021 NQ8) “,” (2022 GG3) “

  • Near Earth’s Aton asteroids today: “(2021 GK4)”, “(2021 RU7)”

Asteroids of the Amur and Atera type do not cross the Earth’s orbit. While it is difficult to detect AtyraAsteroids move completely within the Earth’s orbit, approaching the type of asteroids cupid Earth’s orbit from the outside.

  • Near-Earth Asteroids Today: “(2010 LF14)”, “(2022 FW3)”
