From Medical Daily:
A newly discovered asteroid with a diameter estimated to range from 170 meters to 390 meters will near miss the Earth on May 20 at a distance of only 6.5 million kilometers (4.0 million miles).
Discovered only last week, asteroid 2019 JB1 has been classified by NASA as a Near Earth Object (NEO) or a small Solar System body with an orbit that brings it into proximity with the Earth. A Solar System body is a NEO if its closest approach to the Sun is less than 1.3 astronomical units (AU). If a NEO’s orbit crosses the Earth’s and the object is larger than 140 meters across, it’s considered a potentially hazardous object (PHO). The asteroid 2019 JB1 is a NEO but not a PHO because its orbit won’t intersect the Earth’s.
