Asteroids will be near the Earth on Saturday, NASA reports


On Saturday, November 10 this year, three large asteroids, of which the largest width is up to 30 meters, will approach the Earth, according to NASA's data.

At 14:03 (GMT), an asteroid called 2018 VS1, between 13 and 28 feet wide, will pass near our planet. The estimates of the NASA-based trajectory of this celestial body show that at the time of its closest approach it will be about 1,391,535 kilometers from Earth.

About 16 minutes later, at 14:19 (GMT), another asteroid between 14-30 meters wide, called 2018 VR1, will pass at 5,066,418 kilometers from the planet.

Finally, at 18:21 GMT, the asteroid 2018 VKS1, which is about 8-18 meters wide, will pass at a distance of 380,160 kilometers, slightly less than the average distance between the Earth and the Moon (384,400 kilometers).

Although in the earth scale these distances are huge, in the cosmic world they are considered small, with the information of Actualiti RT.
