Asteroid 2019 HN3 passes the Earth.

Asteroid 2019 HN3 passed by the Earth at a distance of about 2 471 000 km (6.42 times the average distance between the Earth and the Moon, or 1.65% of the distance between the Earth and the Sun), slightly before 2.40 pm GMT on Monday 29 April 2019. There was no danger of the asteroid hitting us, though were it to do so it would have presented a small threat. 2019 HN3 has an estimated equivalent diameter of 30-94 m (i.e. it is estimated that a spherical object with the same volume would be 30-94 m in diameter), and an object at the upper end of this range would be predicted to be capable of passing through the Earth's atmosphere relatively intact, impacting the ground directly with an explosion that would be about 100 times as powerful as the Hiroshima bomb. Such an impact would result in an impact crater over almost a kilometre in diameter and devastation on a wide scale, as well as climatic effects that could last for years.

2019 HN3 was discovered on 26 April 2018 (the day before its closest approach to the Earth) by the Zwicky Transient Facility at Palomar Observatory in California. The designation 2019 HM3 implies that it was the 85th asteroid (asteroid N3 - in numbering asteroids the letters A-Y, excluding I, are assigned numbers from 1 to 24, with a number added to the end each time the alphabet is ended, so that A = 1, A1 = 25, A2 = 49, etc., which means that N3 = 13 + (24 X 3) = 84) discovered in the seconf half of April 2019 (period 2019 H).


The calculated orbit of 2019 HN3. Minor Planet Center.

2019 HN3 has a 903 day orbital period and an eccentric orbit tilted at an angle of 9.40° to the plane of the Solar System, which takes it from 1.01 AU from the Sun (i.e. 101% of he average distance at which the Earth orbits the Sun) to 2.65 AU from the Sun (i.e. 265% of the average distance at which the Earth orbits the Sun, and considerably outside the orbit of the planet Mars). It is therefore classed as an Amor Group Asteroid (an asteroid which comes close to the Earth, but which is never closer to the Sun than the Earth is). Close encounters between the 2019 HN3 and Earth are fairly common, with the last having happened in June 2014 and the  next predicted in February 2024.
