Huge Asteroid will fly by Earth at 0.3 times the distance to the Moon on Sept 1, 2020

On August 16, 2020, a car-sized asteroid flew within 2,000 miles over the Pacific Ocean and now another huge asteroid, which has a condition code of 7 at the time, with 0 being good and 9 being highly uncertain, will fly by Earth at 0.3 times the distance to the Moon on September 1, 2020. 

Asteroid 2011 ES4, which measures approximately 150ft (50m) across, is expected to hurtle past the Earth at staggering speeds of 18,253mph (29,375kmh). 

However, despite Space Agencies giving this space rock a condition code of 7, they say as usual, it is of no threat to Earth because asteroid 2011 ES4 will pass safely, so let’s just say it’s a reminder that Earth has been vulnerable to cosmic impacts in the past, and will continue to be in the future.

Yet an asteroid called “2018 VP1“ will pass within about 300 miles of our planet on November 2, 2020 which is one day before the presidential election, but don’t worry, according to NASA also this asteroid is of no treat to Earth.
