Named 7335, the asteroid will still remain at a good distance from our planet, 4 million kilometers away. Its next passage is scheduled for June 23, 2055. The specialized site space.com evokes a “huge asteroid, as big as four Empire State Buildings”. This Friday, at 4:26 p.m. to be precise, asteroid 7335 (1998 JA) will approach Earth. At a good distance all the same: 4 million kilometers, which corresponds to ten times the trip between the Earth and the Moon, or enough to avoid any risk of collision. No threat But due to its imposing size, 1.8 km in diameter , NASA, the American space agency has classified 7335 as a “potentially dangerous” object. If its trajectory were to deviate, it could cause considerable damage in the event of a collision with the Earth. A scenario which should not occur, especially since the asteroid is well known to the scientific community. is no threat at all. Statistically, 90% of objects larger than one kilometer in size, which by the way is the disaster threshold if they were to fall to Earth, are known. To date, the scientific community has them all identified. We are not threatened by any of them for at least a century”, analysis with Ouest-France Patrick Michel, specialist in asteroids at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). 7335 was discovered in 1989 by the American astronomer Eleanor Helin, then working at the US Palomar Observatory, in California. It has the particularity of being an “Apollo”, namely an asteroid whose orbit is around the Sun, regularly crossing that of the Earth, specifies space.com. It travels at a speed of 76,000 km/h. This year’s largest objectNasa adds that it is the largest stellar object that will pass close to Earth this year, among the 29,000 objects that it is watching. It has already been observed in March, but its approach on Friday will be the “closest”. Those who wish to see it will have to point their glasses towards the Hydra constellation. Its next passage near our planet is scheduled for June 23, 2055, making this Friday’s event all the more exceptional. But the most impressive crossing is scheduled for Friday, April 13, 2029. It is on this date that the asteroid Apophis, nicknamed the “God of chaos” with its 300 meters in diameter, will pass less than 30,000 km from Earth. , or within range of certain communications satellites. NASA has already ruled out any risk of collision.
