Today is quite an unusual day! An asteroid, which was classified as 2023 DZ2, flies by at a distance twice as close to the Earth as from the Earth to the Moon

Its speed is 28,044 km/h, and it is best seen in the Northern Hemisphere.

The exact origin of this celestial body is unknown. However, scientists suggest that most of these celestial bodies come from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter as they leave their orbits due to a "conflict" with these planets.

It will be possible to learn a lot about space, galaxies, stars, meteors and everything that adorns the sky above us on April 12-16 at the Tsiolkovsky International Film Festival in Kaluga.

Screenings are free of charge, one just needs to register on the festival website.
