Giant asteroid to pass near Earth- Asteoride gigante pasando muy cerca de la Tierra

An asteroid that is 400m (1,300ft) wide will pass by the Earth on Tuesday, closer to it even than the Moon.
It poses no danger to the Earth and it will be invisible to the naked eye.
Asteroid 2005 YU55's closest approach, at a distance of 325,000km (202,000mi), will be at 23:28 GMT. It is the closest the asteroid has been in 200 years.
It is also the largest space rock fly-by the Earth has seen since 1976; the next visit by such a large asteroid will be in 2028.
The aircraft-carrier-sized asteroid is darkly coloured in visible wavelengths and nearly spherical, lazily spinning about once every 20 hours as it races through our neighbourhood of the Solar System.


Un asteroide de 400 metros de ancho pasará por la Tierra el día de hoy, más cerca incluso que la Luna.

No supone ningún peligro para la Tierra y será invisible para el ojo humano.

El asteroide 2005 YU55 de máximo acercamiento, a una distancia de 325.000 km (202.000 millas), será a las 23:28 GMT. Es el asteroide más cercano desde hace 200 años.
La próxima visita de un asteroide de gran tamaño será en el año 2028.


ESTA NOCHE ESTAREMOS MUY ATENTOS.....
