Biggest asteroid since 2011 flew by Earth undetected in June: Late warning

For some reason, an absolutely massive space rock flew by Earth last month and it wasn't reported until after it passed

(INTELLIHUB) — A massive 300-foot wide city-killer asteroid passed Earth at a distance of 0.8 Lunar Distances away on June 5 and everyone missed it until 3 days after the fact.

Asteroid 2020 LD was the largest closest passing asteroid to graze Earth since 2011 and could have caused quite some damage if it would have struck.

The next super close known passing of an asteroid will take place on September 1 when 2011 ES4 is expected to pass at a distance of 0.19-0.32 LD.

However, the fact that 2020 LD was missed by early warning systems and planetary defense agencies is rather alarming and could mean several things. One is that either the U.S. and European governments knew about the object and did not report its whereabouts until after its pass and two being that maybe the large asteroid was not detected because it is a fragment of a brown dark star a.k.a. a dark asteroid that can evade detection.
