Earth has a busy schedule of asteroid encounters expected in the coming days. Five asteroids will approach Earth this week, NASA warned.

March 25 at 12:02 Asteroid 2020 FB is expected to arrive. It will approach our planet at 3218688 km. The asteroid is 54 meters wide and travels at a speed of about 16,093 km per hour.

March 26 at 19:39 the arrival of the asteroid 2020 PF is expected, which will pass at a distance of 5632704 km. It is about 39 meters across and travels at a speed of about 33,796 kilometers per hour.

March 26 at 10:52 another asteroid is expected to arrive - 2012 XA133, whose diameter reaches 390 meters, moving at a speed of 85295 km per hour, according to calculations it will fly 6598310 km from the Earth.

March 28 at 8:13 am In the morning, the next "guest" from space will arrive - asteroid 2020 FE2, 45 meters in diameter, which will rush at a speed of 25749 km per hour at a distance of about 1609344 km from our planet.

March 29 at 14:19 arrives asteroid 2010 GD35 with a diameter of 71 meters, flying at a speed of 43452 km per hour and, according to calculations, it will pass from our planet at a distance of about 5793638 km.

It is worth noting that in the event of an unforeseen change in trajectory, which will lead to the fall of any of these asteroids to the Earth's surface, the consequences for our civilization can be very tragic. especially if it is a giant with a diameter of 390 meters.

Recently, real "echelons" of various space stones have been sweeping past our planet and their number and unexpected appearance (some do not detect until they approach the Earth at a minimum distance, and some manage to detect only a day before approaching), raises certain questions - what is the reason and what is the source of this "space attack".

After all, not all of these stones fly by and there have been unusually many cases of space "guests" falling to the surface of the earth or their explosions in the atmosphere recently …
