SPACE reports that “six flybys of relatively large asteroids will happen over a span of two years, beginning in June 2027,” and they “will offer an incredible spree of close asteroid flybys, and none will pose a threat to life on Earth.” NASA JPL Radar Specialist Lance Benner said in remarks April 30 at the International Academy of Astronautics Planetary Defense Conference, “The six asteroids that are going to be coming along will begin in the summer of 2027. ... And then after that, it’s going to be bang, bang, bang – not literally bang, bang, bang, but there will be a number of them coming in very short order, and it should make for a very interesting two years as these objects make close approaches.” (Image Credit: NASA)
