A meteor about 40 meters in height and noticed 5 days ago passed very close to Earth
The meteor “2018 CB” passed the distance between Earth and Moon at a shorter distance than the one. The meteor discovered by the Catalina Sky Research Center, backed by the US Department of the Space and Aviation (NASA), did not pose any danger, even though it passed very close.
The meteor of length 40 is this night which connects 09.02.2018 to 10.02.2018. On 01.27, my world was in the closest position. The 2018 CB passed through nearly 69,700 kilometers of closeness.
Paul Chodas, manager of the Center for Near Earth Surveys at Nasa, explains that “although the 2018 CB is quite small, the meteorite entering the atmosphere in Chelyabinsk city of Russia about 5 years ago may be bigger”. “Asteroids at this size usually do not come close to our planet – maybe once or twice a year,” Chodas said. said.
On the other hand, another small meteor passed this week. Known as the 2018 CC, the object passed on February 6th at a distance of about 184,000 km, very close to the Earth. The Catalina Sky Survey is about 30 meters from the 2018 CC.
