Dedicated page to the future close encounter of the small asteroid (about 25 mt) " 2013 GM3 " and our planet Earth on April 14, 2026. This object was discovered on April 03, 2013 at G96 Mt. Lemmon Survey by J. A. Johnson, Our computations reveal a still quite large uncertainty so that more observations are desirable to improve the orbital elements. Actually we estimate an Earth close approach on April 14, 2026 at a nominal distance of 68420 Km and a possible minimum transit at about 8600 Km above Earth's surface (please see our SAEL - Small Asteroids Encounter List and Table of the Next Close Approaches with the Earth).
All diagrams were extrapolated from internal software used also to compute close encounters between asteroids and the Earth ( SAEL and MBPL ) or the inner planets
