In March, an asteroid will sweep near our planet. It moves at a speed of 34.4 km per second or 123,000 km per hour.

Asteroid 231937 (2001 FO32), 1024 meters long, will fly past the Earth on March 21.

According to the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the space rock moves at a speed of 34.4 km per second or 123,000 km per hour.

According to astronomers’ calculations, the asteroid will fly past the Earth at a distance of more than 2 million kilometers, which is 5 times the distance between our planet and the Moon.

Asteroid 231937 (2001 FO32) was classified by NASA as potentially hazardous.

There are several factors that could affect the future movement of the asteroid, including the gravitational attraction of other space objects in the solar system.

As explained by NASA: “Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are currently defined based on parameters that measure the asteroid’s potential to make threatening close approaches to the Earth.”

According to NASA, “Scientists believe stray asteroids or fragments from earlier collisions have slammed into Earth in the past, playing a major role in the evolution of our planet.”

In addition, earlier scientists stated that the asteroid Apophis is rushing to our planet, which may collide with the Earth in 47 years.
