In 2019, the PC was named as the first spacecraft launched on August 5 this year. Since the first control was performed, NASA observed 39 as an asteroid to determine its size, velocity and trajectory. According to the Space Agency calculations, the space rock climbs to Earth on Sunday, August 18th. Closed Rule. "
Asteroid 2019 PC near the apollo type or NEO object.
Apollo asteroids fly in similar trajectories similar to Apollon 1862, with inner circles of the Solar System.
If space rock – comets and asteroids reach the Earth and the Sun, they are called NEO.
NASA's NEO Research Center says, "By turning the Sun, objects near the Earth sometimes approach the Earth."

Asteroid PC will go on Sunday morning BST at 6.14 (5.14 UTC) in the Earth's crust.
Space diameter is measured from 75.5 to 167 feet (23 m to 51 m).
Asteroid size can be compared to the Nelson column at Telphalghar Square, at the top of the estimate.
In the lower part of NASA measurement, space stones are twice as high as the two-story London bus.

This amount of space explosion hit the Chelyabinsk region of Russia in 2013 when the asteroid suddenly entered the atmosphere.
The so-called "Chelyabinsk Meteor" exploded in the air before it landed, but as a result, glass windows were damaged by more than 1,000 people.
Scientist Natalie Starki warned of such an asteroid as a major city like London.
Fortunately, NASA does not expect Asteroid PK to threaten the planet.
The US Space Agency: "Please note that the nearest astronomers can be very far from the point of view of human beings: millions or even tens of millions of kilometers."

The risk of unexpected asteroids being hit by the Earth is precisely because we have limited knowledge of the number of threats in space.
NASA: "Taking into account the current NEO catalog, the unexpected impact of the Chelyabinsk incident can happen anytime," Nasa said.
On Sunday, space rock flies from our planet at 7,37 km / h or 16,446 miles per second.
At its nearest point, the asteroid comes from the Earth at 0.02809 astronomical units or 2.6 million miles (4.2 million km).
The distance may seem to be lifetime, but not large in outer space.
One astronomical unit – the distance between Earth and Sun – is about 93 million miles (149.6 million km).
