We are talking about the object with the designation 2021 KT1. According to some estimates, its size reaches approximately 330 meters in diameter. For comparison: the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris is 324 meters.

It is reported that the asteroid gets close to the Earth on June 1 of this year. However, our planet does not threaten anything. The cosmic body will be held at a distance of approximately 7.24 million kilometers from us – it is approximately 19 times greater than the distance between the Earth and the Moon.

The asteroid will be passed by our planet at a speed of about 18 kilometers per second. The body belongs to the Class “Apollonov”: These are near-earth asteroids, whose orbits crosses the Earth orbit from the outside. Such objects are potentially dangerous for our planet.
