Just recently, NASA claimed that a massive Asteroid passed between the orbits of our planet and the Moon. We are lucky that the massing Asteroid missed both planets as it could destroy a city. Its size can be assumed by reading the fact that it could devastate any city in the world. Since NASA revealed this news, people have been thrown into a frenzy to search for it. But if you are looking for a detailed article on this headline, this is the right place. We have discussed all the imperative aspects and details shared by the respective agencies.

Massive Asteroid Passing Earth
The asteroid which passed between the orbits of the Earth and the Moon is named 2023 DZ2. Reportedly, 2023 DZ2 had been discovered around a month ago. The scientists assumed that 2023 DZ2 passed within 175,000 KM of the Earth after flying past the Moon on Saturday, March 25, 2023. It is once in a while incident when an asteroid in a range of 40 to 90m in diameter, comes close to the Earth. This is why, the astronomers remarked it on as a once-in-a-decade incident. Scroll down the page and read more details about it.
NASA saw the event with the potential to hit the Earth as an opportunity for astronomers to obtain more details and get more knowledge about asteroids. While the European Space Agency’s planet defense chief named Richard Moissl said that there was no chance of this city killer hitting the Earth but it was close enough to the planet that increase the chances of getting more details of asteroids. “There is no chance of this ‘city killer’ striking Earth, but its close approach offers a great opportunity for observations,” Scroll down the page and read more details.
According to Mr. Moissl, 2023, DZ2 was a scientific interesting object. He further added that more details and data were required to know the asteroid’s composition. Reportedly, this asteroid was also visible through telescopes and binoculars across the world as it was too close to the Earth. In addition, The Virtual Telescope Project also provided a live broadcast of the asteroid. Stay tuned to this website for more details.
