The asteroid will fly on Monday near the Earth

Asteroid 2011 MD, whose size ranges from 8 to 18 meters, on Monday will fly very close to our planet — below the orbits of geostationary satellites. Its collision with Earth is possible, scientists say.

Asteroid 2011 MD was discovered only two days ago, RIA Novosti reported with reference to NASA. On Monday, June 27, at 13.26 GMT (17.26 MSK), he flies away 0.00012 AU from Earth — about 18,000 kilometers, less than half the height of the geostationary orbit (about 36,000 kilometers).

The trajectory of the asteroid at the time of closest approach to the Earth will run
