Near Earth Object Program – Current Impact Risks

‘The following table lists potential future Earth impact events that the JPL Sentry System has detected based on currently available observations. Click on the object designation to go to a page with full details on that object.

Sentry is a highly automated collision monitoring system that continually scans the most current asteroid catalog for possibilities of future impact with Earth over the next 100 years. Whenever a potential impact is detected it will be analyzed and the results immediately published here, except in unusual cases where an IAU Technical Review is underway. For more information on impact monitoring and risk assessment see our Impact Risk Introduction and Frequently Asked Impact Risk Questions.’
