massive asteroids size 31 foot 110 foot and 150 foot danger coming towards earth today nasa asteroid update

Today NASA has issued an alert about three asteroids coming towards the Earth. The structure of asteroids is actually said to be similar to that of planets. That means these are also made of minerals etc. They can be as solid and hard as rocks and do not have any particular shape. These may be of bumpy shape. They keep revolving around the Sun. And due to this rotation, they sometimes move directly in the direction of the Earth. In such a situation, there is a danger of asteroid colliding with the Earth.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is a branch of NASA, tracks asteroids by keeping an eye on their direction and speed so that no asteroid poses any kind of threat to the Earth. Asteroids are present in such large numbers that sometimes more than one asteroid is moving towards the Earth. NASA has issued an alert for today's approach of 3 asteroids.

Asteroid 2023 OS3 is heading towards Earth today which is a 31 feet piece of rock. It is going to come as close as 962,000 kilometers to the Earth. It is as big as a bus. Its size is comparatively small, so NASA has not expressed any fear of danger from it. It is going to pass close to the Earth. Apart from this, Asteroid 2023 OQ3 is also going to pass close to the Earth today. This is a 110 feet big asteroid which is as big as a big airplane. It is going to come closer to the Earth by 1,510,000 kilometers.

The size of Asteroid 2023 OQ3 is large, which can prove to be very destructive in case of collision with the Earth. Apart from this, a third asteroid 2023 OD5 is also going to pass near the Earth today. It is 150 feet. NASA has also compared it to a big airplane. After reaching the nearest point to the Earth, its distance will be 5,310,000 kilometers. NASA has not released any information about this asteroid hitting the Earth. But the possibility that asteroids get attracted towards the Earth cannot be ruled out.
