On the night of May 31 to June 1 space "wanderer" flew past our planet
Nizhegorodtsev Sergei Tereshko at night, when the spring was replaced in the summer, was filmed with a mobile phone trail of fire in the sky over Kiev left by a huge asteroid. This event Sergey shared with "Komsomolskaya Pravda" in the Lower. "
— I am now with relatives in Ukraine, — says Sergey. — Another day on May 31 said all that night a fly past Earth asteroid, and how much was not mentioned. I decided to look at it. We had to wait almost three hours. At nine, climbed on the roof of the building, and about midnight a red spot appeared in the sky.
Maybe this was the very spot asteroid 1998 QE2, whose appearance on the night of June 1, NASA scientists have predicted?
Heavenly body closer to the ground on 5.8 million kilometers — reported the next day the American astronomers. — It is about 200 times larger than the distance at which the asteroid was in February of this year podletevshy at a record close distance to the planet.
This raises many questions. For example, as can be seen in the night sky asteroid that flies so far? Maybe not at all what he saw Sergei asteroid? Then what? Will have to seek explanations to experts.
