Two Objects to Zip Close to Earth Today; Visible Through Telescope

It has been said that on Wednesday two planets could be seen probably close to Earth, as they’ll be zipping between the orbits of Earth and Moon. These objects had been discovered on Sunday by the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona, as they were checking out the skies. NASA also cleared the fact that no object is likely to hit the surface of the Earth.

Accompanying this, it has been said that even though people with an appropriate sized amateur telescope can spot these objects that are situated a few meters away in diameter from earth; yet this telescope is not the only equipment required. People also must possess sharp eyes to view them as these objects will be moving at a great pace.

There will be a difference of 11 hours between these objects to be visible from the Earth. It has been projected that the asteroid 2010 RX30 will be 10 to 20 meters in size and will pass at a distance of 248,000 kilometers from the Earth at 2:51 a.m. PDT today.

And about the second object, that is the 2010 RF12, it will be of the size 6 to 14 meters and may pass at a distance of 79,000 kilometers from Earth at 2:12 p.m. PDT.
