NASA's asteroid tracker predicts that three asteroids will arrive on Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of judgment.
On Monday, September 25, the day of Yom Kippur, three asteroids will pass by Earth, with one of them traveling exceptionally close to Earth's surface.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS), these asteroids have been given the designations 2023 SP3, 2023 ST2, and 2023 SZ.
The diameter of the first asteroid, 2023 SP3, can be anything from 14 meters to 32 meters.
One goat is thrown down a cliff as the scapegoat on Yom Kippur, while another is carried to the Temple.
The National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute at the Smithsonian Institution reports that goats come in a wide range of sizes, with the tallest reaching a height .
Asteroid 2023 ST2 is somewhat larger than 2023 ST1, with a maximum estimated diameter of 36 meters.
Asteroid 2023 SZ, the largest of the bunch, can measure up to 40 meters in diameter.
