Asteroid flyby: Pictures emerge of a 4KM asteroid poised to pass Earth in April AN ASTEROID bound on a "close" but safe flyby of Earth was photographed dashing through deep space. “The giant outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) formed from an agglomeration of billions of comets and the left over bits and pieces from this formation process are the comets we see today. While this particular asteroid didn’t come anywhere near hitting Earth, NASA hasn’t written off the chances of an asteroid collision in the near future. “Impacts of larger objects are expected to be far less frequent (on the scale of centuries to millennia). Aten asteroids, of which there are more than 1,000 typically have a close orbit to Earth, but pose no threat. Gian Masi, who presented the livestream, explained: “We know where the asteroid is because we know its orbit. “However, given the current incompleteness of the NEO catalogue, an unpredicted impact – such as the Chelyabinsk event – could occur at any time.”, The telescope images are fairly grainy, but they clearly show the asteroid flying through a night sky full of stars, When you subscribe we will use the information you provide to send you these newsletters. "The radar measurements allow us to know more precisely where the asteroid will be in the future, including its future close approaches to Earth," said Flaviane Venditti, a research scientist at the observatory, in a statement.

The experts at Arecibo can monitor the asteroids and use observations to determine their path in the future to see if they pose a risk to Earth. NASA explained: “Experts estimate that an impact of an object the size of the one that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in 2013 – approximately 55 feet (17 meters) in size – takes place once or twice a century.
