Asteroid 2023 FM

A massive asteroid, the size of 90 elephants, is hurtling towards Earth. Asteroid 2023 FM is approaching Earth at a speed of 15.8 km/s and is expected to come closest to the planet on April 6th (Thursday), according to data obtained from minorplanetcenter.net.

The enormous space rock has a height range of 85 to 270 meters. Despite the space rock’s massive size, it was only discovered on March 16, 2023, and its elliptical trajectory was determined only on April 2, 2023. However, there is no need to panic, as it will not come closer than 3,000,000 km to Earth’s surface.
