Today, Asteroid 2011 MD to pass Earth on the closest distance. This is a rare opportunity. So lets see… !

With an orbit similar to Earth’s, the asteroid will make the closest approach at 9:30 a.m. EDT on June 27, passing over 7,500 miles   (12,000 kilometers) above the Earth’s surface, according to NASA officials. At that particular moment, the asteroid – which scientists have named 2011 MD – will be sailing high off the coast of Antarctica, almost 2,000 miles (3,218 km) south-southwest of South Africa.
