Large asteroid 7335 (1989 JA)
A large asteroid will safely pass by our planet on May 27, 2022.

Although it won’t be visible to the unaided eye, both professional and amateur astronomers will be looking at the huge space rock as it sweeps past.

Asteroid 7335 (1989 JA) is a stony Apollo-type asteroid (just like the Chelyabinsk asteroid that entered Earth’s atmosphere in 2013, shattering windows over six Russian cities).

In this case, asteroid 7335 (1989 JA) won’t get that close.

But, the May 27 approach is the closest calculated pass of this particular space rock to date, and for the next 200 years.

Specifically, closest approach to Earth happens at 14:26 UTC (10:26 a.m. ET) on May 27.

At its farthest, asteroid 7335 (1989 JA) reaches a point between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

Additionally, asteroid 7335 (1989 JA) orbits the sun every 2.35 years.

It has an estimated diameter of 3,609 feet (1,100 meters).

As an illustration, that’s about 10 American football fields laid end to end.

Also, because of its size – and because it sometimes comes close – asteroid 7335 (1989 JA) meets the criteria for a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid.

However, there is absolutely no danger during the 2022 flyby.

Indeed, the space rock will be as far as 10.5 times the Earth-moon distance, at 2.5 million miles (four million km) from the Earth’s surface.

Gianluca Masi of the Virtual Telescope Project captured this image of asteroid 7335 (1989 JA) on May 18, 2022.

Time is in UTC.

Here, it appears to move among the stars because it’s vastly closer to us than the stars
