A very, very fast and safe asteroid approached Earth at least 487,000 kilometers from our planet, well beyond the average distance between us and the moon.

The asteroid UM12 of 2019, measuring 69 meters in diameter, reached over 30,700 miles per hour and reached its closest point from Earth at 17:41 GMT on November 7.

The asteroid, which was only discovered by NASA on October 24, has not traveled so close to Earth before, and is unlikely to pass it again in the future.

Fortunately, people with powerful telescopes did not need much excitement to shoot UM12 2019 during its near Earth.
