During the month of September, an asteroid will pass close to Earth that does not pose any danger, but that will be close enough to be worth noting.
According to Notícias ao Minuto, the asteroid in question goes by the name ‘465824 (2010 FR) and was first detected in March 2010, with researchers estimating that it is about 270 meters in diameter.
Now, researchers should take advantage of the approach to gain more knowledge about the asteroid.
The US space agency estimates that ‘465824 (2010 FR) will pass through the closest point on Earth on September 6, reveals the same source.
