Asteroid 2002 LX passes the Earth.

Asteroid 2002 LX passed by the Earth at a distance of about 18 000 000 km (46.7 times the average distance between the Earth and the Moon, or 12.0% of the distance between the Earth and the Sun), slightly before 3.55 pm GMT on Monday 19 February 2018. There was no danger of the asteroid hitting us, though were it to do so it would have presented a significant threat. 2002 LX has an estimated equivalent diameter of 120-390 m (i.e. it is estimated that a spherical object with the same volume would be 120-390 m in diameter), and an object of this size would be predicted to be capable of passing through the Earth's atmosphere relatively intact, impacting the ground directly with an explosion that would be 3000 to 150 000 times as powerful as the Hiroshima bomb. Such an impact would result in an impact crater 1.5-6 km in diameter and devastation on a global scale, as well as climatic effects that would last years or even decades.

The calculated orbit of 2002 LX. Minor Planet Center.

2002 LX was discovered on 3 June 2002 by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Lincoln Near Earth Asteroid Research Laboratory in Socorro, New Mexico. The designation 2002 LX4 implies that it was the 23rd asteroid (asteroid X) discovered in the first half of June 2002 (period 2002 L).

2002 LX has a 1456 day orbital period and an eccentric orbit tilted at an angle of 3.24° to the plane of the Solar System, which takes it from 0.83 AU from the Sun (i.e. 83% of he average distance at which the Earth orbits the Sun) to 4.19 AU from the Sun (i.e. 419% of the average distance at which the Earth orbits the Sun, and more than twice as distant from the Sun than the planet Mars). It is therefore classed as an Apollo Group Asteroid (an asteroid that is on average further from the Sun than the Earth, but which does get closer). This means that the asteroid has occasional close encounters with the Earth, with the last having occurred in March 2014 and the next predicted in February 2022. As an asteroid probably larger than 150 m in diameter that occasionally comes within 0.05 AU of the Earth, 2017 YH1 is also classified as a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid. 2002 LX also has occasional close encounters with the planet Venus, which it last passed in June 1996.

  2. Assalamualaikum Wr,Wb.
    Saya dari Pak Adau Ronal bersyukur bahwa saya masih bisa di beri kesempatan untuk menulis dan berbagi kepada teman-teman melalui Situs/web ini,bahwa dulunya saya adalah seorang pengusaha dibidang matterial, dan sekarang saya terpaksa gulung tikar akibat di tipu teman sendiri,ditengah tagihan utang yang menumpuk,istri pun meninggalkan saya,ditengah himpitan ekonomi seperti ini saya coba buka internet untuk cari lowongan kerja,dan secara gak sengaja saya liat situs pesugihan MBAH KASURI, awalnya saya ragu dan gak percaya tapi setelah saya lihat pembuktian MBAH KASURI di Situs/webnya Saya pun langsug hubungi beliau dan Semua petunjuk MBAH saya ikuti dan hanya 3 jam beliau laksanakan pesugihan dana gaib untuk saya,Alhamdulilah Ternyata benar-benar terbukti dan dana 3 Miliar yang saya minta benar-benar ada di tangan saya, semua utang saya pada lunas dan sisanya buat modal usaha, kata-kata beliau yang selalu saya ingat setiap manusia bisa menjadi kaya, hanya saja terkadang mereka gak tau atau salah jalan.Banyak orang menganggap bahwa miskin dan kaya merupakan bagian dari takdir dari tuhan.maksudnya takdir macam apa? bahwa tuhan gak perna memberi takdir yang buruk terhadap kita,semua cobaan yang Tuhan berikan merupakan pembuktian bahwa seberapa kuat kita bertahan di dalamnya. Tuhan gak akan merubah nasib kita jika kita gak bisa berusaha untuk merubahnya.
    Dan satu hal yang perlu kita ingat,“Bahwa jika kita terlahir miskin itu bukan salah siapapun,namun jika kita mati miskin itu merupakan salah kita.”karena kita terlahir didunia ini di beri kesempatan untuk berusaha agar tetap jadi orang yang sukses.dan saran ini saya dapat dari beliau bermanfaat sekali bagi saya makasih ya MBAH atas semua saran anda MBAH sekali lagi saya sangat berterimakasih kepada MBAH KASURI dan bagi anda yang ingin seperti saya silahkan hubungi MBAH KASURI di nomer ini
