Asteroid 2002 AJ129 is going to fulfill its approach to the Earth on February 4, 2018. The distance between them is 10 times greater than the distance of Earth-Moon
February 4, 2018 is expected to arrive asteroid 2002 AJ129. At the point of maximum proximity, the distance between it and our planet is 10 times greater than the Earth-Moon distance. (4.2 million km).
2002 AJ129 - near-earth asteroid with parameters of 0.5 km to 1.2 km. It was recorded on January 15, 2002. In the period of the next approach, the speed will be 34 km / s, which is higher than that of many near-Earth objects. The acceleration is created because of the asteroid's orbit, which comes too close to the Sun (18 million km).
An asteroid is considered dangerous, but not a direct threat. He has been monitored for more than 14 years, which allowed him to accurately study the orbital path. Calculations show that we are guaranteed safety for the next 100 years.
