Little Asteroid paid a high price for almost conspicuous Earth Thursday

  Large space rock that seems close to Earth from space.

Artistic concept of an asteroid approaching the earth.

This post I have this morning on Twitter by Tony Dunn ( @ tony873004 [1

He talks about the near-Earth asteroid C0PPEV1 – now renamed 2019 UN9 – in the early morning hours of October 31, 2019, from the Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona and soon afterwards spotted by other observatories. This little asteroid came incredibly close yesterday. According to simulations, it happened on October 31 at 13:45 UTC (3:45 pm EDT) within 3,852 miles (6,200 km) over southern Africa. By many telecommunications satellites (geosynchronous orbits above Earth that cause satellites over a single satellite) Point on the earth's surface) are 22,236 miles (35,786 km) high. It was so close that CNET reported:

According to these early observations, the asteroid came closer to the surface of our planet (without actually colliding with our atmosphere) than any other close approach in the NASA database of known near-Earth objects.

EarthSky has not confirmed that C0PPEV1 (2019 UN 13) came closer to Earth than any other known near-Earth object.

But we can confirm that small asteroids like these sometimes approach and actually enter the Earth's atmosphere frequently. The Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization, which operates a network of sensors that monitor the Earth 24/7 and pay attention to the infrasonic signature of atomic explosions, announced in 2014 that it has since registered 26 atomic bombardments on the Earth's atmosphere in 2000. [19659011] We can also confirm that the orbit of a small asteroid approaching Earth is likely to be compromised. One such effect, known as gravity assist, is used by NASA and other space agencies to propel our spacecraft to hard-to-reach locations in the solar system.

Conclusion: Earth's gravity has bent the trajectory of the small asteroid C0PPEV1 (now called 2019 UN 13), which passed over the earth and caused its aphelium on October 31, 2019, or Der am farthest point is an orbit around the sun to move in the asteroid belt between Jupiter and Mars. Until then, C0PPEV1!
