On July 24, three asteroids are expected to approach the Earth – 2019 OD, 2015 HM10 and 2019 OE – according to NASA's Center for Near-Earth Study Studies.

The largest space body of these three would be from 2019, whose diameter can reach up to 120 meters (almost the height of the Great Pyramid in Giza). The space object travels at a speed of 19.17 kilometers per second and will approach about 353.650 kilometers from our planet, the distance closer to the one that separates the Earth's moon (384.400 kilometers).

The other two objects should measure at most 53 and 110 meters in diameter and extend to a greater distance than separates it from Earth. It is also reported that none of the three space bodies poses a threat to our planet.

At the end of June, astronomers in Hawaii discovered a MO 2019 asteroid almost 4 meters in diameter, a few hours before entering the Earth's atmosphere and decaying about 380 kilometers south of San Juan (Puerto Rico). Was For the fourth time in history, astronomers discovered the asteroid with such a small effect. The past has happened with the asteroids 2008 TC3, 2014 AA and 2018 LA, all over the past 11 years.
