Queen‘s iconic guitarist Brian May posted a picture of an ‘asteroid‘ on Instagram and warned his fans about the importance of getting informed about a possible collision.

As you might remember, Queen legend Brian May has been dealing with health problems for a while now since he had a heart attack earlier in May. As he shares updates on his health status with the fans via social media, Brian has been getting better and better every day.

Recently on Instagram, Brian May posted a picture of an asteroid named ‘Bennu‘ in order to raise the awareness of his fans about another danger to humankind, asteroids on ‘Asteroid Day.’

‘Asteroid Day’ is an annual global event that is held on June 30th every year. The date was actually referred to as the ‘Tunguska‘ event which was a huge explosion in Russia in 1908.

Furthermore, on his Instagram post, Brian warned his followers about the significance of being informed about possible asteroid collisions and how to be prepared for such a disaster.

Here’s what Brian May stated on the caption of his Instagram post:

Today is Asteroid Day!!! This is Bennu – an asteroid in ‘Near-Earth’ orbit. (Swipe for stereos) But not so near that it could impact our planet. However, there are literally millions of asteroids out there. They are not all charted yet. So is there a possibility one could hit us? Yes! So the CorinaVirus pandemic is not the only tragedy that could overtake the Human Race.

Asteroid Day is all about getting mankind prepared for such an emergency – or avoiding it. 💥 You can help! Please visit AsteroidDay.org to learn about asteroids, and participate in this UN day of education and awareness. By the way… BenBen is that large rock towards the bottom of the body of the asteroid.
