100 Foot Asteroid To Pass Very Close To Earth Tuesday
A 100 Foot Asteroid is To Pass Very Close To Earth Tuesday March 8th 2016. NASA is saying that the asteroid’s orbit is very uncertain but they expect it to pass as close as 15,000 miles from Earth. If you go to their website related to this asteroid named asteroid 2013 TX68 you will see that it is, at the time of this writing, at a condition code of 8, where code 0 is good and 9 is uncertain. They are at 8. The information is at NASA.
The Asteroid can be well within the ring of geostationary communications and GPS satellites stationed 22,300 miles above the equator.
If it does successfully miss us we need to find out it’s orbit precisely to figure out what will happen when it comes back around in the future.
