Dangerous Asteroid 2024 HP Close Encounter: A Picture – 28 May 2024.

We captured a dangerous Earth asteroid 2024 hp A few days after a relatively close, but apparently safe, encounter with Earth.

Hazardous Asteroid 2024 HP: 28 May 2024.

The image above is from a 300-second exposure, taken from a distance Celestron C14+Paramount ME+SPIG ST8-XME The robotic unit is available as part of the Virtual Telescope project. The telescope tracked the apparent motion of the asteroid, so it looks like a sharp point of light, indicating a white arrow, while the stars leave bright streaks in the background.

At the time of imaging, the asteroid 2024 hp It was about 6.8 million km from us and left us after five days of flyby. The asteroid was discovered by the Mount Lemmon Survey On 17 April 2024.

This 160 m – 350 m large asteroid reached its minimum distance from us (about 5.9 million km, 15.4 times the average lunar distance) on 23 May 2024 at 17:01 UTC (source: Nasa/JPL). Of course, there is no danger to our planet.
