Below is the list of asteroid close approaches to Earth in 2017.

Timeline of known close approaches less than one lunar distance from Earth in 2017[edit]

A list of known near-Earth asteroid close approaches less than 1 lunar distance (0.0025696 AU (384,410 km; 238,860 mi)) from Earth in 2017.[note 1]

For reference, the radius of Earth is approximately 0.0000426 AU (6,370 km; 3,960 mi) or 0.0166 lunar distances.
Geosynchronous satellites have an orbit with semi-major axis length of 0.000282 AU (42,200 km; 26,200 mi) or 0.110 lunar distances. In 2017, five known asteroids have traveled nearer than this, 2017 GM, 2017 UJ2, YU95BEF, 2017 EA, and 2017 WE30. P10ELNY and A104Vqx probably have traveled nearer, but knowledge of their orbit is too poor to be sure.

While most asteroids on this list are confirmed, well-observed unconfirmed objects with a 50% or greater chance of passing within 1 LD of the Earth are included as well.

This list does not include any of the 29 objects that collided with earth in 2017, none of which were discovered in advance, but were recorded by sensors designed to detect detonation of nuclear devices (of the 29 objects detected, 6 had an impact energy greater than that of a 1 kiloton device) [1].

     Rows highlighted red indicate objects which were not discovered until after closest approach

     Rows highlighted yellow indicate objects discovered less than 24 hours before closest approach

     Rows highlighted green indicate objects discovered more than one week before closest approach (in 2017 only one object was detected on final approach this far in advance, 2017 TD6)

     Rows highlighted blue indicate objects discovered more than one year before closest approach i.e. objects successfully cataloged on a previous orbit, rather than being detected during final approach (in 2017 only one object was detected this far in advance 2012 TC4 which was discovered 5 years previously)

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ For a list of current Earth close approaches see NEO Earth Close Approaches
  2. ^ Distance from the center of Earth to the center of the object. See the NASA/JPL Solar System Dynamics Glossary: Geocentric. Earth has a radius of approximately 6,400 km.
  3. ^ Closest approach for 2017 BH30 was over the Taymyr Peninsula
  4. ^ This will mark the first time an asteroid was observed passing less than 1 LD to the Earth on two different occasions.
  5. ^ distance error: 0.0000894 AU, approach range: 0.17 to 0.24 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.
  6. ^ distance error: 0.000283 AU, approach range: 0.36 to 0.58 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.
  7. ^ distance error: 0.0000611 AU, approach range: 0.027 to 0.074 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.
  8. ^ distance error: 0.000163 AU, approach range: 0.023 to 0.15 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.
  9. ^ distance error: 0.000121 AU, approach range: 0.035 to 0.13 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.

Timeline of close approaches less than one lunar distance from the Moon in 2017[edit]

The number of asteroids listed here are significantly less than those of asteroids that approach Earth for several reasons. Asteroids that approach Earth not only move faster, but are brighter and are easier to detect with modern surveys because:

  • Asteroids that come closer to Earth are a higher priority to confirm, and only confirmed asteroids are listed with a lunocentric approach distance.
  • Those that closely approach the Moon are frequently lost in its glare, making them harder to confirm. They are similarly hard to discover during the new moon, when the Moon is too close to the Sun to detect asteroids while they are near the Moon.

These factors severely limit the amount of Moon-approaching asteroids, to a level many times lower than the asteroids detected passing as close to Earth.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Distance from the center of the Moon to the center of the object. The Moon has a radius of approximately 1,740 km.
  2. ^ This is the closest any known asteroid has passed to the Moon in nearly three years, after 2014 GY44 passed 0.097 LD from the Moon in March 2014.
  3. ^ distance error: 0.00000802 AU, approach range: 0.807 to 0.814 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.
  4. ^ This is the closest any known asteroid has passed to the Moon in nearly three years (even closer than 2017 DG16) after 2014 GY44 passed 0.097 LD from the Moon in March 2014.
  5. ^ distance error: 0.00000171 AU, approach range: 0.181 to 0.194 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.
  6. ^ distance error: 0.0000188 AU, approach range: 0.788 to 0.803 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.
  7. ^ distance error: 0.000177 AU, approach range: 0.69 to 0.83 LD. The asteroid is unconfirmed and will likely never receive a provisional designation.

Virtual Impactors[edit]

List of asteroids with a Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale greater than −6 that are listed on the Sentry Risk Table because they have short observation arcs with poorly constrained orbits and have a chance of impacting Earth in 2017. Given a short observation arc, many different orbits fit the observed data. 2010 XB73 could have approached Earth around May 2017 or could have been 9 AU[117] from Earth on the way to a close approach with Saturn in 2018. A Palermo rating of −4 indicates an event that is 10,000 times less likely than the background hazard level of Earth impacts, which is defined as the average risk posed by objects of the same size or larger over the years until the date of the potential impact.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c Discovered and only observed by WISE, an infrared telescope, so no apparent magnitude magnitude, and therefore estimated size was provided. As such, the size is only a rough estimate. Observation arc is only 1.3 days. Eccentricity is assumed and the object is lost.
