What 2020 was missing: the asteroid “god of chaos” approaches Earth

According to specialists, this body will pass close to the orbit of our planet, which is why they consider it potentially dangerous.

This asteroid was discovered in 2004 by a team of astronomy specialists at the Kitt Peak Observatory.

At the Australian observatory Siding Spring Survey they follow their path. A calculation error maintained that it was going to pass through the land in 2029 but it was 9 years ahead.

When they started studying it, the possibility of it impacting Earth was evaluated, although it was later ruled out. However, there are concerns that the approach to Earth will harm several satellites and space station engineers.

According to NASA, Apophis is 340 meters wide, which means that it is quite small compared to other asteroids if we consider that 1998 ORS is four kilometers long. On the planned path, the god of chaos will pass about 31 thousand kilometers from planet Earth.
