His route is similar to the trajectory of the Chelyabinsk meteorite. He flies by planet, Venus and Mars, and is a real danger for the inhabitants of the earth.
The asteroid was recorded robotic telescope “Master” at a time when he flew past the planet Earth at a distance of approximately 1.496 million kilometers.
Scientists have brought it to the list of potentially dangerous for mankind celestial bodies.

Russia’s only network of robotic telescopes MASTER created by Lomonosov Moscow State University University in collaboration with the three domestic universities (Ekaterinburg, Irkutsk and Blagoveshchensk), Kislovodsk Station of the Pulkovo Observatory RAS and the University of San Juan (Argentina), an asteroid discovered in 2014 UR116, – more than 300 meters in diameter – which can collide with the Earth. This was reported by the laboratory site space monitoring MSU.
Exact trajectory of the asteroid 2014 UR116 yet impossible to determine, but theoretically it could collide with the Earth, and Mars and Venus. The energy of the explosion, in the event of a collision with the Earth, a thousand times greater than the explosion of Chelyabinsk asteroid.
2014 UR116 – this is the third potentially dangerous asteroid, discovered masters. Two others – SW24 2013 and 2013 UG1 – were smaller 250 and 125 meters respectively.
