Asteroids hit Earth
In March, a mile-wide asteroid will pass close to the Earth. It has been described by NASA as ‘potentially dangerous’. The asteroid is twice the size of the world’s tallest building, #Burjcliffa. A planet called 231937 (2001 FO 32) is unlikely to strike Earth, as it would be 1.2 million miles away from the planet, which is five times away from the Moon.
It is said that on March 21, it will reach Earth at four in the morning. In the future, it is likely to hit the planet of the solar system at some point, because this planet is dangerous. But around this time, expert scientists have ruled out any such possibility of a collision with the Earth.

A little above the southern horizon can be seen immediately after sunset on March 21 with an eight-inch aperture telescope. The asteroid was first discovered in 2001 in Mexico.
