Asteroid Alert: Huge meteorite near Earth, the size of two football fields

OE2 Asteroid Alert. If you are also interested in celestial bodies and interesting events happening in the universe, then today can be a special day for you. Actually tonight a giant planet has passed close to our Earth. Astronomers of NASA are also keeping a constant eye on this huge meteorite village. According to NASA scientists, this OE2 asteroid is about the size of two football fields and this asteroid passed close to Earth on the night of Thursday, August 4.

OE2 asteroid was discovered on 26 July

NASA astronomers discovered the planet OE2 a few days ago on July 26, which has been named 2022 OE2. The OE2 asteroid is a space rock measuring 557 by 1,246 feet (170 by 380 meters), roughly twice the size of a football field. According to astronomers, the OE2 asteroid is an Apollo-class asteroid, which means that this celestial body is also orbiting the Sun and is currently about to cross the Earth’s orbital path.

This meteorite passed through a distance of 51 lakh kilometers from the earth

The OE2 asteroid passed from Earth at a distance of about 3.2 million miles (51 million km), which is 13 times the average distance between Earth and the Moon. Let us tell you that NASA constantly keeps an eye on such meteorites, which are about to pass close to the Earth. The good news is that there is no danger of a catastrophic asteroid impact on Earth for at least the next 100 years, NASA said.
