Asteroid 2016 RB1 to flyby Earth at 0.1 LD on September 7, 2016

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Newly discovered asteroid 2016 RB1 will make a very close flyby of Earth on September 7, 2016, passing at 0.1 LD (38 400 km / 23 860 miles) from the surface of our planet.

The size of 2016 RB1, based on absolute magnitude, is estimated to be between 7.3 and 16 m (24 to 52 feet). For comparison, this is about half the size of the asteroid that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia in February 2013, injuring over 1 000 people.

At the moment of its closest approach, around 17:12 UTC tomorrow, 2016 RB1 is expected to flyby Earth at a relative speed of 8.1 km/s. The orbit uncertainty estimate for this object is 8 (on a scale of 0 – 9), highly uncertain.

This Aten class asteroid was first observed by Mt. Lemmon Survey on September 5, 2016.
