'Potentially hazardous' asteroid measuring over 1km will pass by Earth tonight

For people who have been watching Don't Look Up, don't worry, this asteroid is 'potentially hazardous' but is still flying by us over five times further away than the Moon - NASA says there is nothing to worry about

The asteroid, which has been studied for decades, is set to fly by our little blue planet and is bigger than any building on it.The asteroid has been given the affectionate name of 7482 (1994 PC1) and measures more than a kilometre in width at 1,052m (3,451ft).

Meanwhile, the world's tallest building, Dubai's breathtaking Burj Khalifa, is a puny 830m (2,723ft) high.It has been labelled as a “Potentially Hazardous Asteroid” due to its regular passings of the planet as well its enormous size.Does Asteroid 7482 (1994 PC1) pose a threat to Earth? No, tonight's enormous asteroid will not pose a threat to our planet, in fact, it will pass some 1.2 million miles away from the rock that we all call home.

It has been labelled as a “Potentially Hazardous Asteroid” due to its regular passings of the planet as well its enormous size. Robert McNaught discovered asteroid (7482) 1994 PC1 at the Siding Spring Observatory in Australia on August 9 1994. Does Asteroid 7482 (1994 PC1) pose a threat to Earth? No, tonight's enormous asteroid will not pose a threat to our planet, in fact, it will pass some 1. "So, I do think when we look at this, we can be confident that more people would have come to harm without the protections we had in place.

It's over five times further away than the Moon is to Earth, but in the infinite expanse of space, this could still definitely be chalked up as 'a close one'. However, for a little bit of scale, the absolute closest to Earth that our neighbour Mars ever gets is 33.” The agency’s Planetary Defence Coordination Office monitors the skies to find, track, and monitor near-Earth objects.9 million miles away, NASA says. On its Twitter account, NASA said: "Near-Earth #asteroid 1994 PC1 (~1 km wide) is very well known and has been studied for decades by our #PlanetaryDefense experts. The mission aims to prove a spacecraft can autonomously navigate to a target asteroid and intentionally collide with it, smashing it off course. "The view has been that, actually, we can safely release measures in the way that we've done.

Rest assured, 1994 PC1 will safely fly past our planet 1.2 million miles away next Tues., Jan. 18." The big lump of space rock was first discovered in 1994 at the Siding Spring Observatory in Australia by a chap named Robert McNaught." Wales' average Covid rate has fallen to 1,109.

The skies above Earth are watched closely by NASA's Planetary Defence Coordination Office, which keeps tabs on threats to the planet. In a thrilling bit of real-life imitating a sci-fi movie, NASA is trialling the 'double asteroid redirection test' programme, or Dart. The aim of Dart is to prove that a man-made ship could independently find its way out to an asteroid in space and knock it off its original course. The hope is to develop technology that, if all life were under threat dinosaur-style, could save us from armageddon. The asteroid made its closest pass to the Earth in 1933 when it flew by just 699,300 miles away from the Blue Planet.

What time is asteroid 7482 (1994 PC1) passing Earth? The asteroid is set to pass Earth on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. It isn't thought to be passing close to us again until January 18, 2105. Can you watch the asteroid from Earth? It is thought to be flying at around 43,754 miles per hour and will be able for people to view via the Virtual Telescope Project which will stream live at 8pm. The closet approach will be at 9:51pm. Has Earth ever been hit by an asteroid before? While the last clear extinction event is likely the one that wiped out the dinosaurs, smaller asteroid events do happen frequently.

In fact, thousands of tiny bits of space rock hit Earth each year but most are too small to cause any harm. .
