NASA is currently aware of more than 1.1 million asteroids in the solar system. Thousands more are discovered each 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 approach the Earth’s orbit and therefore can also be dangerous to our planet. This article gives you an overview of all the near-Earth asteroids that are reaching the closest point in their orbit today.
On Monday, June 19, 2023, a total of 8 asteroids will reach their closest station during the day.

The largest asteroids close to Earth today

(2023 FN14) With an estimated diameter of 514 to 1148 meters, it is currently the largest near-Earth asteroid. (2023 FN14) “It will make its closest approach to Earth today at 8:03 PM. It is the second largest near-Earth asteroid (2006 WZ3) Its diameter is estimated from 236 to 527 meters. (2016 JB6) Today it ranks third among the largest near-Earth asteroids (198 m – 443 m).

This asteroid is particularly close to Earth today

The closest thing to Earth today is an asteroid (2016 LK49). It will approach our planet at 01:02 am at a distance of 6.7 million km.
The asteroid closest to us so far without hitting Earth was “(2020 QG).” On August 16, 2020, it flew over the Earth at a speed of about 44,000 km/h, just 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 by. It probably wouldn’t have caused much damage on the ground even if it had crashed. 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 had come close.

potentially dangerous asteroids

Potentially hazardous asteroids are those that are closer to Earth than 0.05 AU (about 7.5 million km) and have an absolute brightness of 22 mag or less. It is therefore considered large enough (at least about 140 meters in diameter) to cause significant damage in the event of a collision. About 20 percent of near-Earth asteroids are classified as hazardous.
There are no potentially dangerous asteroids near Earth today.

6 cruisers orbited near the Earth

Asteroids that cross Earth’s orbit are also called orbit cruisers. Asteroids of the near-Earth type Apollo Crossing the Earth’s orbit from the outside, asteroids of the near-Earth type I come Crossing the Earth’s orbit from the inside. Today, a total of 6 Earth orbit cruisers are approaching our planet.

  • Apollo asteroids near Earth today: “(2006 WZ3)”, “(2016 LK49)”, “(2020 BR11)”, “(2022 OC3)”, “(2022 OB5)”

  • Today’s Near-Earth Asteroids: “(2004 BT58)”

Asteroids of the Amur and Atera types do not cross Earth’s orbit. While it is difficult to detect AteraAsteroids move entirely within Earth’s orbit, and are approaching asteroids Cupid Earth’s orbit from the outside.
