Asteroid impact warning! NASA reveals asteroid heading for Earth at 21154kmph

A small yet potentially hazardous asteroid is rushing towards Earth to make uncomfortably close approach. Know what NASA says.   (Pixabay)

Another asteroid is getting a little too close to Earth for comfort today. (NASA)

Yesterday, three asteroids grazed past Earth, one of them skimming in-between ‘low Earth orbit.’ (Pixabay)

Now another asteroid is all set to make its closest approach toward Earth which is causing concern. (NASA)

This is so because NASA's JPL has given the tag of potentially hazardous objects to all the space rocks that approach within 4.6 million miles of Earth and have a size larger than about 150 meters (Pixabay)

The upcoming asteroid dubbed 2023 DA is traveling at a blistering speed of 21154 kmph ans will come as close as 665000 miles to Earth. (NASA)

You should note that the average distance between Earth and the moon is about 239,000 miles.  (Pixabay)

And that’s how asteroid 2023 DA poses a great risk. A small deviation from its orbit can lead to catastrophic consequences on Earth.  (Pixabay)

According to, the asteroid 2023 DA will buzz the Earth on February 26, today at 18:53. (Flickr)

The asteroid 2023 DA was detected on February 16, 2023. This near-Earth object belongs to the Apollo group. (Pixabay)

Astronomers keep a close watch on these near-Earth objects with the help of NASA-supported ground-based telescopes such as Pans-STARRS1 in Maui, Hawaii, the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona, and a space-based telescope called NEOWISE. (Pixabay)
