The solar system is said to have been born 4.6 billion years ago. According to space scientists, the solar system is made of a large gas cloud (nebula). The explosion scattered many celestial bodies in space, out of which planets, satellites, asteroids etc. were formed. Scientists say that asteroids are unique in themselves. The history up to the birth of the solar system may be hidden in them. Therefore, space scientists study them so that the history of the formation of the solar system can be found out. These days, asteroids are passing close to the Earth which can also become a threat to the Earth.

NASA has issued an asteroid alert for today i.e. 3rd August. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has given an alert today for asteroid 2023 OW4. This rock is moving towards the earth today. This is a 31 feet asteroid. When it passes close to the Earth, at its closest point it will be at a distance of 565,000 kilometers from our planet.

Asteroid 2020 PN1 is also going to pass near the Earth today. This is an asteroid of the Apollo group which is 90 feet. When it reaches near the Earth, its minimum distance will be 4,150,000 kilometers. This asteroid revolves around the Sun in 366 days. According to Space Reference, this asteroid has already intersected the Earth's orbit and will intersect it in the future too. It is said that it is going to come in the path of Earth 65 times. The orbit of the asteroid was detected on 28 August 2019. After that it was officially recognized in 2022. Today it is again going to pass very close to the Earth. However, NASA has not yet given any information about its collision with the Earth.
