Florence pasará a 7 millones de kilómetros de distancia de la Tierra (18 veces la distancia entre la Luna y la Tierra) y los astrónomos que monitorizan el objeto creen que no tendrá una trayectoria potencialmente peligrosa hasta por lo menos dentro de 500 años.

"Florencia es el asteroide más grande que pasará por nuestro planeta tan cerca desde que comenzó el programa de la NASA para detectar y rastrear los asteroides cercanos a la Tierra", dijo el director del Centro de Estudios de Objetos Cercanos de la NASA (CNEOS) Laboratorio en Pasadena, California, Paul Chodas.

El asteroide Florence fue descubierto por Schelte 'Bobby' Bus en 1981. Fue nombrado así en honor de Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), la fundadora de la enfermería moderna. El encuentro de 2017 es el más cercano por este asteroide desde 1890 y lo más cercano que será hasta después de 2500.
