Our solar system, or solar system, exists in the Milky Way Galaxy. The Milky Way galaxy also has 4 parts, out of which our solar system is present in the outermost circle. It is revolving around the center of the galaxy. That is, just as our planets are revolving around the sun, similarly in the Milky Way Galaxy our sun is revolving around it carrying 8 planets with it. There are countless similar galaxies in which millions of suns are present and are continuously rotating in a circle.

According to NASA, there are 8 planets in the solar system. There are 12 lakh 98 thousand 368 (12,98,368) asteroids present in the solar system, and also 3,880 comets are reported. All of them are rotating with the sun due to the force of gravity. Rocky fragments called asteroids sometimes intersect the Earth's orbit and a collision occurs. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory tracks asteroids. For the last several months, incidents of asteroids coming towards the earth have been continuously seen.

According to Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Earth is going to face several asteroids after 2 days. 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. It is going to reach close to the Earth after 48 hours. At its closest point, it will be only 756,000 kilometers away from Earth. Its size has been compared to a large airplane. The danger does not end here.

NASA has said that the 2023 OE5 asteroid will also reach close to Earth on the same day. 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. NASA says that when an asteroid comes closer than 75 lakh kilometers, it becomes dangerous for the Earth. Therefore it is important to keep an eye on asteroids. Asteroid 2023 OE5 is going to come as close as 15.5 lakh kilometers to the Earth, which is a very short distance. By coming so close, the probability of the asteroid colliding with the planet increases, because the planet's strong gravity can pull it.
