A asteroid with a diameter somewhere in the range of 22 and 49 meters will shoot pass Earth in a distance closer than Earth from the Moon on Tuesday, as per the U.S. Public Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

“Will #asteroid 2011 ES4 hit Earth? No! 2011 ES4’s close approach is ‘close’ on an astronomical scale but poses no danger of actually hitting Earth. #PlanetaryDefense experts expect it to safely pass by at least 45,000 miles (792,000 football fields) away on Tuesday Sept. 1,” NASA Asteroid Watch posted Saturday on its Twitter account.

NASA appraises the asteroid’s relative speed at around 8.16 km every second.

The last time space rock 2011 ES4 fly by Earth was obvious from ground for four days. This time, it will be nearer to Earth than before with an expected distance of 1.2 lakh km, closer than that of the Moon, which is 3.84 lakh km away from the Earth.

The asteroid recorded as conceivably risky asteroid was first found in the spring of 2011 and passes by Earth like clockwork.

A “potentially hazardous asteroid” is presently characterized dependent on parameters that measure the asteroid’s capability to make compromising close ways to deal with the Earth, as indicated by NASA.
