The asteroid recorded as conceivably risky asteroid was first found in the spring of 2011 and passes by Earth like clockwork.

The size of the asteroid 2011 ES4 is comparable to a multi-story building: the cosmic body, according to various estimates, has a diameter of 22 to 49 meters. The speed of the object will be 8.16 kilometers per second.

The Near-Earth Object (NEO) is nearly twice the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza at about 270m wide and flies at 31,400mph towards the Earth. This will be the closest approach of the particular asteroid towards Earth.

The Palomar Observatory in California first detected the rock, now known as 2020 QG, six hours after it flew over the southern Indian Ocean at 5:08am BST (12:08am ET) on August 16. The last time Asteroid 2011 ES4 came close to earth was in 2011 and was visible for four days.

What is a close approach? The name of the asteroid is Asteroid 2011 ES4. the news was tweeted on Saturday by the NASA Asteroid Watch.

"If that happens, and given that the moon is almost full right now, then it's possible that none of the surveys will find it during this flyby".

"Will asteroid 2011 ES4 hit Earth? No!"

NASA said on its Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) website: "NEOs are comets and asteroids that have been nudged by the gravitational attraction of nearby planets into orbits that allow them to enter the Earth's neighbourhood". "We didn't see it coming", Dr. Chodas told Business Insider. There is no risk from this, however the gravity of the close planetary system's planets and the sun can likewise influence the space rocks.

There are still plenty of NASA satellites now orbiting Earth: the International Space Station, Aqua, Sputnik 1, Terra, Uhuru, LAGEOS-1, Aura, Mir, Hitomi, Ats-3, Explorer 11, and more. However, we do not expect it to collide and cause any damage.
