A large celestial body the size of the Washington Monument rushes towards Earth. According to NASA’s asteroid tracking system, it will fly past the planet on December 27.
According to astronauts, the length of AH 2018 is about 190 m, and if it collides with the Earth, it will cause more destruction than an atomic bomb.
According to scientists, the asteroid is unlikely to hit the planet. It must travel at a distance of more than 4.5 million km. Interestingly, the same asteroid has already flown to Earth earlier and was at a much closer distance. In 2018, it flew past the planet at a distance of 296,758 km, which is closer than the Moon to Earth. Since then, no celestial body of this size has come so close to the Earth.
