It was picked up only last weekend by amateur astronomer Gennady Borisov, who operates from Nauchny in Crimea, the peninsula that Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014.
This space rock named BU 2023 was first seen coming towards the Earth on Saturday from the famous Crimea-based astronomer and astrophotographer Gennady Borisov. This is the same person who found the first interstellar comet in 2018, which is now named Borisov. Scientists say that asteroid BU 2023 is only 11.5 to 28 feet (3.5 to 8.5 meters) wide, which means that it will not pose any threat to our planet.
today’s big news
Scientists said asteroid BU was about ten times closer to the planet than the orbit of geostationary weather satellites and about six times closer to the orbit of navigation satellites such as the US GPS constellation. However, everyone was expressing concern about the distance of this asteroid passing near the Earth, lest it collide with the Earth, causing a crisis. Although this has not happened.
Scientists had said, Asteroid will become a ball of fire
Scientists believed that with its small size, the asteroid is not at all a risk for BU Planet. If it does enter Earth’s atmosphere, most of it will burn up and become a ball of fire, but some small pieces could potentially survive and fall to the ground as meteorites.
