There have been numerous asteroid impacts on Earth in the course of its 4.6 billion-year-old history but a handful of them stand out.

One of the earliest asteroid impacts on Earth was around 4.5 billion years old when a massive object called Theia, about the size of Mars, collided with Earth and resulted in the formation of the Moon.

Another asteroid crashed in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico nearly 65 million years ago, and it wiped out the dinosaurs. The most recent asteroid impact happened just a decade ago when an asteroid exploded over the city of Chelyabinsk in 2013.

The largest asteroid to hit Earth was around 2 billion years agoThe increasing number of asteroids that pass Earth closely has made it imperative for space agencies such as NASA and ESA to continuously monitor them, and another one is set to pass Earth closely today.
