An asteroid four times the size of the “Empire State Building” will pass by Earth today. Three days later, a very short, but very intense meteor event

An asteroid four times the size of the "Empire State Building" will pass by Earth today. Three days later, a very short, but very intense meteor event 1

A huge asteroid, four times the size of the “Empire State Building”, will pass from Earth today, at a relatively short but safe distance, as US space officials point out. Some days later, on the night of May 30-31, comet Schwassmann-Wachmann will fly apart

According to NASA’s “CNEOS” Study Center, the asteroid named “7335” will approach our planet at a distance of 4 million kilometers, at a speed of 76 thousand kilometers per hour.

According to the French newspaper “Le Parisien”, the asteroid has a diameter of about 1.8 kilometers and was discovered 33 years ago by astronomer Eleanor Helin at the American Observatory “Palomar” in California.

“7335” orbits the Sun every 861 days (2.36 years).

According to the “CNEOS” database, it is predicted that it will make a total of 16 more transits from Earth by 2194, but it will not come so close to our planet again, for at least another 172 years.

According to space officials, the asteroid “7335” will pass through our planet at a distance of at least ten times that of the Moon from Earth.

The asteroid “7335” is one of the largest ever found approaching our planet, more than twice the size of the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai.

On May 30-31, a kilometer-long comet

Another official candidate for a collision with the Earth is called SW3 – 73P / Schwassmann-Wachmann. The comet was discovered in 1930 by German astronomers Arnold Schwassmann and Arno Wachmann, who worked at the Hamburg Observatory in Germany.

The disintegrating comet created a tail of debris known as the Tau-Herculid stream. Scientists said that this stream will hit the Earth at the end of May and could become the most intense in the last 20 years.

For some time, the comet was periodically observed, after which one day it was not found on the trajectory indicated in the catalogs and could only be found using especially powerful telescopes and satellites. As it turned out, in the region of 1995, the comet began to disintegrate and by 2006 it consisted of 68 large pieces:

NASA pinpoints at May 30-31 for “a very short, but very intense meteor event,” which can now mean almost anything. 

Therefore, everything can either end with a beautiful meteor shower, or the impact of a rather large meteorite. So, according to rough estimates, the diameter of the core of SW3 was more than a kilometer and its fragments are large. 

The second option is something that various advanced people are now observing in high class telescopes with an IR filter:

Thus, on May 30-31, could we be talking about the first mass observation of Nibiru, which for the first time will be passed off to countries and people as the SW3 comet?
