The asteroid Apophis is said to "fly over" the surface of the planet in 2029 at an astonishing distance of only 30,000 kilometers. Second Thought educational YouTube channel said in a Friday video: "Many scientists are watching the asteroid Apophis, which will only be 30,000 kilometers from Earth in 10 years – basically, the surface will be overflown cosmologically. Consider the fact that Apophis passes between weather satellites and the earth to get a perspective.
"Apophis, named after the Egyptian god of chaos, is considered a potentially dangerous asteroid.
"An asteroid gets this designation when it reaches a certain size and proximity to the groundswell.
"Apophis definitely checks both boxes.
"The asteroid God of Chaos has a solid diameter of 340 meters, making it one of the largest specimens to pass so close to Earth.

"The 2029 flyby system is probably the best opportunity for scientists to investigate up close, as his next visit will be far safer than the one 36 million miles away.
"Even average citizens will be able to see the branches roid flies across the sky in 2029.
"It is expected to glow approximately as brightly as the surrounding stars and cover the distance of the moon in the sky in about 60 seconds."

The shock waves and the resulting ball of fire and destruction devour the whole of New Guinea, much of Borneo and parts of Northern Australia.
However, NASA claims that there is only one out of 250,000 chance that Apophis will hit our planet.
Steve Chesley, who works for the agency, said, "Since its discovery in 2004, Apophis has been one of the celestial bodies that has aroused the public's interest."
"Computer Technology Updated and New Data available show that the Probability of a rainstorm on April 13, 2036 for Apophis has dropped from one in 45,000 to about four in one million. "
The Astrophysical Observatory of Turin Alberto Cellino warned:" We can rule a collision on the closest approach to Earth, but then the orbit will change in a way that is currently not fully predictable, so we have the behavior on a longer time scale can not predict.
NASA is currently developing the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART).
DART will test whether it is possible to divert asteroids that are vulnerable to Earth impact.
