First Encounters: Asteroid MD 2011 Meets the GPS Constellation

A schoolbus-sized asteroid grazed the Earth's atmosphere around 1:00 P.M. (EDT)  on June 27. It was 7,600 miles (12,300 km) away at its closest point, at which time it veered away across the South Atlantic Ocean.

It actually passed through the GPS constellation, alerting us to the vulnerability of our vital PNT space vehicles. We can now add asteroids to the the list of GNSS collision risks that already includes other satellites and space debris.
