Asteroid will Fly By Earth at 0.3 Times the Distance to the Moon

A newly discovered asteroid designated 2018 WJ will make a close approach to our planet at a distance of 0.3 LD / 0.00079 AU (118 182 km / 73 435 mi) on November 19, 2018.

2018 WJ belongs to the Apollo group of asteroids and its estimated diameter is between 8 m and 17 m (26 and 55 feet).
The asteroid will make its closest approach to Earth at 23 23 UTC on November 19 at a speed (relative to the Earth) of 18.6 km/s.

Other 5 newly discovered asteroids flew past Earth in less than 1 lunar distances since November 13, 2018. Three of the asteroids sneaked safely past Earth, only to be discovered after they'd buzzed our planet.

The closest one (2018 WG), flew past our planet on November 16, at a distance of 19,520 miles ( 31,415 km). That distance is well inside the geostationary sattelites, and it was the second closest of the year.

You might have seen a bright, white-purple ribbon weaving up into the sky, unlike anything you had ever seen before. Could it be lighting? Fireworks? Maybe a spaceship finally bringing the first wave of envoys from the nearest habitable planet?
