A Bus-Sized Asteroid Will Approach Earth in Early 2022

According to NASA, the asteroid 2014 YE15, first discovered in 2014, will approach the Earth at a distance of about 7,400,000 kilometers on January 6.

Although NASA considers objects larger than 150 meters, which approach the Earth at a distance of 7.5 million kilometers, to be potentially dangerous, this large asteroid the size of a bus is not considered a threat, writes Russia Today.

At the end of the year, ie on December 29, an asteroid about 149 meters wide will approach at a distance of about 3,540,000 kilometers.

Asteroids appear near Earth for several days, and NASA monitors their movements and regularly updates the list.
