Per: Beyond Earth
Three asteroids flew by Earth Wednesday, although none of them were considered to pose a threat, according to NASA. The asteroid 2019 OD passed the closest, flying closer to the Earth than the moon. It will cross Earth’s orbit within 222,164 miles of the surface. The moon is 238,900 miles away. It was only observed by NASA for the first time three weeks ago. It likely passed by around 9:31 a.m. ET today. The asteroid is 393 feet across at its widest point and passing by at 42,926 miles per hour. The asteroids 2019 OE and 2015 HM10 also zip by Earth Wednesday, the former at 10:36 a.m. ET at a distance of 600,494 miles away and the latter at a distance of 2,914,164 miles early this morning at 2 a.m. ET.
