Near Earth Objects (NEO): Earth's Upcoming Close Approaches with Asteroids

NEOs (Near Earth Objects) are a category of Asteroids whose orbit is very close to intersecting Earth's orbit. These objects are tracked carefully by astronomers because of potential risk of impact.

The table below is updated multiple times per day and lists all the known upcoming close approaches between the Earth and NEO asteroids that will be closer than 5 Lunar Distances and will happen in the next 10 years.

Color coding:

  • close approach distance is less than 2 Lunar Distances;
  • close approach distance is less than 1 Lunar Distances;
  • close approach distance is less than 0.5 Lunar Distances;

Asteroid Name Date and Time of Closest Approach (UT) Close Approach Distance Approach Relative Speed km/s
