NASA has never issued a warning for a dangerous asteroid impact
Most of the asteroids in the Solar System occupy the main belt between Mars and Jupiter. However, there are populations of asteroids distributed throughout the Solar System, and many of them frequently make close approaches to the Earth. Here are the significant close approaches for the entire year.

On 04 February, 2024, the asteroid bearing the designation of 2011 MD approached within 15,000,000 kilometres of the Earth, closer than 10 per cent of the distance between the Earth and Mars. The asteroid orbits the Sun once every 396, making it a frequent visitor to the Earth. 2011 MD is scheduled to make another near approach to the Earth in August this year.

Physicist Minjae Kim from the University of Warwick says, “2011 MD is one of several asteroids expected to make close approaches to Earth this year. Notable ones include 2020 BX12 passing close to the Earth on 19 February. 2022 YO1 follows in December 2024, coming within 0.014 AU. Despite frequent sensationalist media coverage about distant asteroids, real danger is often not present. For example, On April 13, 2029, the 1,100-foot-wide asteroid 99942 Apophis will pass closer than 20,000 miles from the surface, which is closer than some satellite orbits. However, it will not collide with our planet.”
