Scientists have discovered a new space object closest to the Sun

In modern science, a rather significant event has occurred - astronomers managed to find the first

history of an intravenous asteroid. Its distinguishing feature is the orbit, which is located inside the orbit of Venus, which makes this asteroid the closest cosmic object to the Sun.

This discovery was made by astronomers from the project.ZTF - they were able to find another object from the Atira group - the so-called in-terrestrial asteroids - which revolves around the Sun, but whose orbit is entirely inside the orbit of Venus.
