A video on Youtube claims a forecast of near-Earth objects (NEOs) shows one of these may hit Earth in November. Asteroid 2020: 2018VP1 headed toward Earth on November 2, just … : FBI, Regina Taylor debuts virtual play 'the black album.2020.resistence', Car crash causes power outage in Northbrook, RELATED: Fireball streaks across sky over Midwest, WATCH: Videos show meteor falling over Chicago suburbs. A reading of 0 is very confident and a reading of 9 is very uncertain.
It is far smaller than the 2000 WO107’s 820m size, but at 210m wide, 2014 SD224 is large enough as well. First, here’s how the easy math works. The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of Advance Local. The most monstrous asteroid slated to approach Earth within the remaining six months of 2020 is 153201 2000 WO107, which at its largest point, has a diameter of 820m – almost as large as eight football pitches in length, and only slightly smaller than the height of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. The diameter of Earth is about 7,900 miles. So the forecast of the path of this asteroid is still very uncertain. However, its H value of 22.5 is also the highest in this list, which yet again squarely classifies it as a PHA, as per NASA’s CNEOS data. The narrator correctly points out that this object’s distance from Earth is measured to the center of the earth. Operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at the California Institute of Technology, CNEOS now maintains a publicly available data sheet of near-Earth asteroids, which includes both historic data, as well as asteroids that are expected to fly past Earth in relatively close quarters. An artist's illustration of a giant asteroid approaching Earth.

On November 2, 2020 an object labeled “2018 VP1″ is currently projected to come very close to Earth. The final big space rock to fly past Earth this year is asteroid 501647 2014 SD224, which will approach us on December 25. With H value of 22.2, the asteroid 2002 BF25 qualifies as a potentially hazardous asteroid (PHA), and is one of the larger space rocks to come near our planet this year. Taking these data points into consideration, here are six asteroids that are almost 200 metres or larger in diameter, and are scheduled to fly past Earth in close proximity in 2020. Asteroid 465824 2010 FR’s close approach to Earth will be the farthest among all the large space rocks floating around us, where at about 7.4 million kilometres away, its orbit intersection with Earth is at the upper limit of what is considered ‘hazardous’. The distance to the moon is nearly 239,000 miles. The most immediate threat comes to Earth as early as tomorrow, July 21, when asteroid 2002 BF25 is slated to whoosh past our planet. Suburban Riverwoods resident captures a meteor over Chicago on his front door camera.

So, at the moment, you don’t have to start preparing for a catastrophe. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory website shows the near-Earth objects and their forecasted distance from Earth as they pass by. The minimum distance from Earth is forecast to be 0.02 times the distance between Earth and the moon. First, the asteroid is very small at only 6 feet across.
It will come to its closest distance with Earth on August 5, when it will be at a distance of 4.12 million kilometres from our planet. Well, 2020 keeps getting better all the time. He says first look at the confidence level. Asteroid forecast for November 2, 2020 from Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Its H value of 22.3 also classifies it as a PHA, and makes for one of the largest asteroids that tick all the checkboxes for being a potentially threatening one for Earth. That’s if the asteroid even held together in one piece and hit the earth. Subscribe to MLive.com. The video is a little off on its math.
The asteroid, known as 2018VP1, was first spotted back in 2018.
It is this orbit distance, coupled with visual magnitude (denoted as H) of 22 or above, that classifies an asteroid as a ‘potentially hazardous’ one, even if it does not necessarily mean that life on Earth will be threatened by it. 501647 2014 SD224. Video claims asteroid impact coming in November, but experts … Nasa says asteroid 2018VP1 is projected to come close to Earth on November 2, 2020, a day before Election Day. The chance of dying from Covid 19 is .026%. (courtesy: @ordgeek). Following up later this week is the asteroid 2020 ND, which is 260m large at its widest point, and has designated H value of almost 22.
Even if the object came within 4,780 miles of the center of the earth, it would still miss us.
