Apophis is approaching the earth tonight. There is a real danger of a little contact. Scientists are not relieved until Apophis is quietly crossing the earth without any trouble.
It is known that Apophys can travel 44 times more than the distance from the moon to the earth. But if the distance is somehow reduced and it comes in contact with the earth, then it is a defeat.
Satellites in Earth’s orbit will burn. So now scientists have set the telescope on Apophis with a watchful eye.
Note that the apophysis is 1000 feet (300 meters) in size. It is getting closer to the earth now, but it will come back eight years later in 2029.
At that time there is a possibility of a collision with the earth. When Apophis returns in 2029, it will try to travel 19,000 miles (31,000 kilometers) across the globe.
