European astronomers have recorded the movement of the huge asteroid 2018 TF3 in near space. Scientists assume that there is a danger of a collision of this body with the Earth in February 2022.

Experts say that the size of the asteroid is really impressive. We are talking about dimensions comparable to St. Paul's Cathedral, at the same time the object is slightly larger than this architectural structure. If we compare the length of the car with the height of London's Big Ben, then the asteroid is larger. Currently, astronomers cannot say if its trajectory will pass in such a way that there is a risk of the 2018 TF3 object approaching Earth.
At the same time, this tendency should be expected, since the movement in space of the observed body indicates a similar possibility. Presumably, a dangerous approach to Earth can occur during February 2022, and this asteroid is capable of completely destroying all life on the Blue Planet.
