Asteroids are continuously passing through the Earth these days. NASA tracks asteroids and issues alerts for them. But this alert is issued only for those asteroids which come closer than 75 lakh kilometers from the Earth. Such asteroids are considered a threat to the Earth. According to NASA, 13 lakh asteroids have been identified so far. Of these, there are about 2 thousand asteroids for which there is a possibility that they may collide with the Earth. 5 asteroids have passed by touching the Earth in the past day.

These asteroids are said to be large ranging from 57 feet to 150 feet. One of these is the 2023 PQ asteroid. This is a 110 feet long piece of rock. At its closest approach to the Earth, it passed at a distance of only 756,000 kilometers. Its size has been compared to a large airplane. Along with this, 2023 OE5 asteroid also passed close to the Earth yesterday. Its size is 60 feet. This is an asteroid the size of a big house. Its speed is said to be 13934 kilometers per hour. This asteroid belongs to the Apollo group. It was first seen on 24 July 2023.

Asteroid 2023 OE5 has passed near the Earth at a distance of 15.5 lakh kilometers. By coming so close, the probability of the asteroid colliding with the planet increases, because the planet's strong gravity can pull it. Along with this, Asteroid 2023 PA1 also passed close to the Earth yesterday. This is a 100 feet asteroid which is said to be the size of a large airplane. It has passed near the Earth at a distance of 2,520,000 kilometers.

Coming closest to the Earth, the distance between these two was only 2,540,000 kilometers. Apart from these four asteroids, a fifth threat also almost touched the Earth yesterday. Its name is Asteroid 2023 PC, it had come close to the Earth at a distance of 5,090,000 kilometers. Its size is said to be 140 feet. Now many asteroids are being seen together near the Earth. In such a situation, they may pose a threat to the earth.
