2 asteroids flew safely from earth on monday

The two asteroids made flybys close to Earth on Monday (September 14), a common occurrence in both cases that does not put our home planet at any risk.

According to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Center for Near Earth Object Studies, the first space rock, a bus-shaped asteroid called 2020 RF3, is located at 5849 miles (94,000 kilometers) off our planet at 2:49 EDT (0649 GMT) is. This is equivalent to a distance of 239,000 miles (385,000 km), a quarter of the way to the Earth’s moon.
