Two comets will safely fly closely by Earth next week, and astronomers believe that it will be a close shave. According to experts, the double flyby will tell them whether these two comets were previously one.
The first one among the duo will pass carefully on March 21, 2016. The second comet will come closely to Earth than any comet in the past 250 years.
Experts from NASA believes that these comets will not create any drastic impacts on Earth. In typical cases, Comets will not affect Earth, and it will provide scientists a golden chance to study about these extraterrestrial objects.
Due to their small size, people will not be able to see them through their naked ones. If you want to watch, you will need a powerful, professional grade telescope.
If speculations become correct, the second comet Comet P/2016 BA14 will have a close shave with Earth within 2.1 million away on Tuesday, March 22, 2016, at 10:30 AM EST.
NASA officials confirmed that this will be third closest comet flyby since 1770. In 1983, another comet had also passed near to earth in a similar distance.
Micheal S P Kelley, of the University of Maryland, recently told that the two comets might be having some connection. According to Kelley, comets are nothing but the frozen leftovers of the early solar system.
Astronomers claim that these close shaves are rare and unusual. 252 PM IT scientists discovered the first comet 252P in 2000. Hawaiian observatory Pan-STARRS found the BA 14.
