On February 9, an asteroid 2018CB will fly past our planet at a distance of 64,000 km
This week, two small asteroids will fly past the Earth at a safe distance. On February 4, the object 2018CC was noticed, whose span fell on February 6 at a distance of 184,000 km. In size reaches 15-30 m.
More interest is the second stone - 2018CB. Its arrival is expected on February 9 at a distance of 64,000 km (less than 1/5 of the Earth-Moon distance). He was also noticed on February 4, and pulled out at 14-40 m.
Despite its small size, the 2018CB may surpass the size of the Chelyabinsk meteorite that collapsed in 2013. Such cosmic rocks rarely converge with our planet - once or twice a year.
