Flies to the Earth previously "lost" asteroid

Flies to the Earth previously

Pacific Standard Time: 3:15 p.m.

The space rock is believed to be equivalent in size to the one that exploded more than 100 years ago in Russia's Tunguska region in Siberia - the largest impact event on Earth in recorded history. It's passing closer than large asteroids typically do, but remember, when you're talking about space, "close" is a relative term. The object will pass by at a close but safe distance from us. Then they realized it was asteroid 2010 WC9, returning.

The "lost" asteroid was rediscovered on May 8, nearly eight years after it vanished from observations.

The asteroid was found again just last week.

The asteroid will fly over the earth at a staggering 28,000 miles per hour and it will be between 60 and 130 meters.

The near-Earth asteroid 2010 WC9, which is thought to be between 125 feet and 390 feet (38 to 119 meters) wide, will get within 126,000 miles (203,000 kilometers) of Earth tomorrow evening (May 15) - about half the distance between our planet and the moon.

Earth is going to come in close contact with an asteroid Tuesday the size of a city block.

Sunrisers Hyderabad not out there to make a statement: Tom Moody
Hyderabad paced the chase brilliantly and reached 91 for 1 in 10 overs, 39 more than what Delhi had managed at the halfway mark. The table-toppers struck early in the power play as Shakib Al Hasan removed openers Jason Roy and Prithvi Shaw.

Asteroid 2010 WC9 is an Apollo type space rock.

The estimated diameter of the lump ranges from 60metres to 130m, making this pass one of the closest approaches ever observed of an asteroid of this size. It was discovered by astronomers in 2010 who were a part of the NASA-funded Catalina Sky Survey. The asteroid will be moving quite rapidly (30 arcseconds per minute). The name of this space rock is "Asteroid 2010 WC9".

"Our Astrometric information while this occurs, but the motion of the asteroid will happen every five minutes", explained Wells.

You won't be able to see it with the naked eye, but the Northolt Branch Observatories in England will broadcast it live from their telescope on its Facebook page.

"Once enough data had been collected by us, and other observatories, it soon became apparent that it wasn't a new asteroid".

An asteroid astronomers lost track of for eight years has returned.
