An asteroid may collide with earth on March 27th


Washington: A mammoth asteroid measuring 1000 meters wide is said to be in the orbital course of earth.
According to astronomers the large object may collide with earth on March 27th.
As per the assumptions of NASA, there are also possibilities to narrowly miss the collision within days.
The object called ‘2014-YB35’ is predicted to pass close to the earth which travels at more than 23000 mph in space. It is not unusual for small meteorites to pass close by.
If the size of the asteroids are big, they will be a real threat to planets.
Their presence would develop destructive changes in the climate followed by calamities such as earthquakes, tsunamis etc.
Bill Napier, professor of astronomy at the University of Buckinghamshire, told that a comet or damaging asteroid would hit the Earth creating very real threat.
According to him, something like YB35, having a scale of global destruction, would pose a risk to the continuation of the planet.
He has clarified these events as very rare even though they are real threats.
But according to experts, the life-altering damages to any planet by the asteroids would be a matter of time.
Astronomers of the Catalina Sky Survey is said to have spotted the asteroid object last year.
They said that if it hits Earth, overcharge of debris would be thrown into the atmosphere, changing the climate and possibly making the planet livable for all life.
Smaller impacts of collision would be capable to destroy cities.
