A giant asteroid named Florence is coming towards the earth
On September 1, an asteroid named Florence is coming towards our blue planet. But there is nothing to fear. There will be no collision of the earth with him. Florence is a monstrous asteroid 4.4 km long. But despite the fact that such a large asteroid has never traveled so close to Earth, NASA and astronomers around the world have been shaken by the news of the arrival of an asteroid.
It is known that the Australian astronomer Sylhet Bus first observed this asteroid in 1981. The asteroid is named after Florence Nightingale. The last time this asteroid came to Earth was in 1890. However, even if it passes by the earth, the distance is not less. 60 lakh km. So there is nothing to fear. However, scientists have been known to monitor his movements.
In fact, astronomers are aware that if an asteroid or a meteor with a length of more than 1 km passes close to the earth. And here is the question. What if such a large asteroid landed on Earth? Surely that would have been a big accident. Incidentally, in 2013, a huge meteorite hit Chelyabinsk in Russia. The meteorite, which weighs about 10,000 tons, caused extensive damage in the area.
