It is between 120 and 260 m across and will pass within the orbit of the Moon. The asteroid was discovered on 16 June 2024, only 13 days before it passes Earth. It poses no risk to our planet, but the fact that it was discovered so late highlights the need to continue improving our ability to detect potentially hazardous object in our cosmic neighbourhood."
