Near-Earth objects pass the planet daily over the course of the next seven days


The National Aeronautics Space Administration Center for Near-Earth Object Studies close approach data lists a total of 13 known objects set to make a close pass with Earth between now and the runup to the 20 January presidential inauguration ceremony which is set to take place on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in the District of Columbia.

But don’t fear — all of the objects are set to pass by at a safe distance from the planet.
