located 22,000 miles away
Earlier an asteroid 2023 BU was discovered on January 21 and it came just 2,200 miles from the Earth’s surface. Which was roaming around the southern tip of South America on January 27 at around 12.30. This means it came 10 times closer than the world’s telecommunication satellites, which are located at a distance of 22,000 miles above us. Their distance is almost equal to Cyprus from London.
will not affect the earth’s surface
According to media reports, NASA further said that this asteroid can be destroyed much earlier, due to which it will not cause any harm to the earth. At the same time, it is not a threat to the surface of the earth under any circumstances, but still NASA has put it in the category of dangerous objects. Although this cannot be confirmed.
