Huge Asteroid is Set to Pass The Earth Next Month on September 14.

This is by all accounts an asteroid season. After Asteroid 2006 QQ23 zoomed past Earth not long ago without occurrence, another space rock is set to fly past our planet in September. Named as Asteroid 2000 QW7, it will come as close as 5.3 million kilometers to Earth when it goes by the planet. 

The space shake is evaluated to quantify 650 meters in distance across, making it somewhat littler than the Burj Khalifa (829 meters), the tallest structure on Earth, and marginally taller than Shanghai Tower (632 meters).

Size And Speed of The Asteroid 2000 QW7.

2000 QW7 is huge, assessed to be somewhere in the range of 290 and 650 meters (951 and 2,132 feet), making it altogether bigger than the Empire State Building and the Washington Monument joined.

As indicated by a report by Fox News, the NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) states that Asteroid 2000 QW7 will hurtle past Earth on September 14. It will go at a speed of 14,361mph (23,112kmph). As the space rock is coming surprisingly close to our planet, it is known as a Near-Earth Object (NEO).

Another asteroid that has been in the center in the course of the most recent couple of weeks is 99942 Apophis, named after the Egyptian divine force of chaos and darkness, and it was at first accepted to collide with Earth in 2029, in any case, further perceptions have expelled that probability. 

Its distance across is assessed to be roughly 370 meters. It was last seen in 2015 and that the information demonstrates the April 12, 2068 effect likelihood is presently 6.7 in a million (1 out of 150,000), and the asteroid has an aggregate 9 of every a million (1 out of 110,000) possibility of affecting Earth before 2106. 

Independently in April, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said that an asteroid strike isn't something to be trifled with and is maybe Earth's greatest danger.
