Astronomers warn that an asteroid will touch our planet on February 2013


On February 2013 an asteroid about 50 meters in diameter, recently discovered by Spanish astronomers, will pass close to Earth.

According to preliminary calculations, at 19:25 (GMT) on February 15, 2013 the celestial body will approach Earth at about 26,900 miles closer than the geostationary satellite orbits (about 35,000 km) , as published on the website of NASA.

Asteroid 2012 DA14 was detected on 23 February by the specialists of the Astronomical Observatory of the Saga, located in southern Spain. Later observations of Spanish scientists were endorsed by French astronomers, Italians and Americans.

These scientists showed that the celestial body belongs to the family of the Apollo asteroids, whose orbits intersect the Earth. About two thirds of known asteroids that approach Earth are of this type. According to available data, the celestial body can be measured between 40 and 95 feet long.

Astronomers will continue to collect data on 2012 DA14 and specifying the information about his career.
