Objects move at a speed that is 12 times the speed of sound.



Three asteroids have received designations: 2022 SE6, 2022 SR4, and 2022 SY4. The Jerusalem Post writes about it.

The first two asteroids - 2022 SE6 and 2022 SR4 - have approximately the same estimated diameter: from 18 to 41 meters wide.

For comparison: both asteroids with a height of 41 meters will be slightly more minor than the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
