NEAR EARTH ASTEROID

Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs) are space rocks larger than approximately 100m that can come closer to Earth than 0.05 AU. None of the known PHAs is on a collision course with our planet, although astronomers are finding new ones all the time.

On January 31, 2017 there were 1770 potentially hazardous asteroids.
