NASA Just Discovered an Asteroid Will Fly Annoyingly Close to Earth on Halloween

29 posts in this topic

A 320-meter asteroid will pass by Earth on Halloween, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has announced. The asteroid, called 2015 TB145, doesn’t represent a threat to the planet. The news wouldn’t be terribly scary save for one important detail: NASA just discovered the asteroid 10 days ago.

Astronomers say the asteroid will pass at a distance of 1.3 lunar distances from Earth (about 300,000 miles away). It’s expected to be the closest flyby by a large object until at least August 2027, assuming there aren’t others we have missed (which is a big assumption). In February 2013, a smaller, Olympic pool-sized asteroid passed within 17,200 miles of Earth—closer than weather and communications satellites in geosynchronous orbit.

The difference then was we had a yearlong lead time before that asteroid crossed paths with Earth. The newly discovered asteroid is on the outer edge of being considered "potentially hazardous."
