Interest in the movement US3 2013 was due to the fact that this year the asteroid will come closer to the maximum distance with the Earth, which will reach 160 million kilometers.

EarthSky reported the asteroid, labelled 2018 GE3, came within about 192,300 kilometres of Earth at its closest point at 6.41pm on Sunday.

NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) estimated the size at between 131 and 328 feet.

Only a handful of scientists at NASA detected the asteroid as little as 21 hours before it crossed Earth by a narrow margin. The asteroids which are present in this belt do not pose any threat to the Earth.

The 2018 GE3 asteroid was discovered just one day before it skimmed past Earth in what scientists are calling a "surprise" flyby.


'Hours later, amateur astronomer Michael Jäger of Weißenkirchen Austria video-recorded the space rock gliding through the southern constellation Serpens'.

Asteroid 2018 GE3, an Apollo type asteroid, was flying through space at 66,174 miles per hour (106,497 km/h). First observed at Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona on Saturday, April 14, 2018, the asteroid - which has been labeled 2018 GE3 - swept past us at about half the Earth-moon distance early Sunday morning according to clocks in North America.

According to EarthSky, a large portion of the asteroid would have been disintegrated by friction with the air upon entering our atmosphere.

This particular asteroid was not just larger that the one that struck Tunguska, it was estimated to produced 185 times more energy than the Hiroshima atomic bomb, a report in space.com said. Nevertheless, a few of an asteroid this size may have gotten across Earth's surface area, and an asteroid this huge can triggering some local damage, depending upon different elements such as structure, speed, entry angle, and area of effect.
