On May 27, an asteroid 1.8 km wide flew by the Earth. He did not pose any danger, since the distance from him to our planet was approximately 4 million kilometers, that is, 10 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon.

This space object, also known as 7335 (1989 JA), is the largest asteroid to pass by our planet this year. It is very bright, so it could be seen in medium sized telescopes. Several of the largest observatories at once, located in different parts of the Earth (in Chile, Australia and Rome), monitored the space guest. Thanks to the collaboration between the Virtual Telescope Project and Telescope Live, everyone could observe the asteroid through virtual telescopes.

The asteroid moves at a speed of 76 thousand km / h, so in the event of a fall to Earth, it would lead to an inevitable catastrophe and the death of hundreds of millions of people. Because of this, 7335 (1989 JA) is classified as a “potentially dangerous” object. NASA experts say that in the next 100 years, asteroids that pose a real danger to the Earth are not expected.
