Asteroid 2019 SG1 passes the Earth.

Asteroid 2019 SG1 passed by the Earth at a distance of about 849 000 km (2.21 times the average  distance between the Earth and the Moon, or 0.57% of the distance between the Earth and the Sun), slightly before 9.10 pm GMT on Sunday 22 September 2019. There was no danger of the asteroid hitting us, though were it to do so it would not have presented a significant threat. 2019 SG1 has an estimated equivalent diameter of 6-17 m (i.e. it is estimated that a spherical object with the same volume would be 6-17 m in diameter), and an object of this size would be expected to explode in an airburst (an explosion caused by superheating from friction with the Earth's atmosphere, which is greater than that caused by simply falling, due to the orbital momentum of the asteroid) in the atmosphere between 38 and 25 km above the ground, with only fragmentary material reaching the Earth's surface.

2019 SG1 was discovered on 20 September 2019 (two days before its closest encounter with the Earth) by the University of Arizona's Mt. Lemmon Survey at the Steward Observatory on Mount Lemmon in the Catalina Mountains north of Tucson. The designation 2019 SG1 implies that the asteroid was the 31st object (asteroid G1 - 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 G1 = 7 + (24 X 1) = 31) discovered in the second half of September 2019 (period 2010 S).

2019 SU2 has a 1398 day orbital period and an eccentric orbit tilted at an angle of 2.32° to the plane of the Solar System, which takes it from 0.74 AU from the Sun (i.e. 74% of he average distance at which the Earth orbits the Sun) to 4.15 AU from the Sun (i.e. 415% of the average distance at which the Earth orbits the Sun, and more that twice as far from the Sun as the planet Mars). It is therefore classed as an Apollo Group Asteroid (an asteroid that is on average further from the Sun than the Earth, but which does get closer).

  2. I have been leaving with Genital Herpes for 6 years with lot of outbreaks and stigma, with the knowledge of no cure for the virus affected me morally and mentally because of the discrimination by people. I started using Famvir (famciclovir) drugs for a very long time but which is not totally preventing the outbreaks and didn’t cure me either. l came across lot of testimony on a blogger page including the doctor email address when surfing the internet about how they were cured from different diseases within 21 days with Dr. Ahmed Usman local traditional Herbal medicine example of the doctor patient were ‘Luciene Ethan from Ecuador and Denver Luke from Florida’ which I find interesting so I decided to give the doctor a try. I contacted Dr. Ahmed on his official email address and after telling me his means of preparation I ordered for one which he truly sent to me through UPS delivery service and with his prescription I used the herbal medicine for 21 days and I discovered the different between the herbal medicine and famciclovir drugs, the outbreaks on my private part was cured and the symptoms I used to have were no more, after using the herbal medicine as prescribed by doctor Ahmed I decided to go for another IgG text and my result came out negative with no trace of the virus on my blood. I will really love to recommend him to anyone with the virus and you reading this testimony with the virus to please contact him for cure, he is really trustworthy and his herbal medicine works for herpes, because he cured me, I will really love if this doctor Herbs will be published for anyone without internet assess to purchase and be cured. My name is Adam Jules and I am from United Kingdom I love herbs so much. please contact doctor Ahmed Usman through his Email address on: drahmedusman5104@gmail.com. Please share the good news to other people once you are cured. He said he has herbal medicine for Breast cancer, Fibroid, Asthma, joint and bone pains and Diabetes

I got tested at first when i first had the virus and i My doctors prescribed Antiviral medicine for me which really helped me a lot in suppressing the virus. I finally got cured using herbal protocol ordered from Dr Onokun an African herbalist. I used his Products and it completely fought the virus and was tested negative.
