ATLAS is becoming brighter as it approaches the sun because it is being blasted with increasing amounts of radiation from the sun.
Researchers identified the minor planets beyond the orbit of Neptune.
Data indicates that the object could measure anywhere between 1.1 and just over 2.6 miles in diameter, based on its observed magnitude.
The March full moon was the second of four consecutive supermoons this year.
The rover will search for signs of past microbial life on Mars, while also investigating the planet's climate and geology.
The hole is the entrance to an underground cavern.
However, researchers say they need more data to confirm whether the object is natural or man-made in origin.
"We've been planning this mission and executing for the last 10 years—and the initial results are really exciting," Bruce Banerdt, InSight principal investigator said.
The tropical year—or the length of time it takes for the Earth to go from one equinox to the next—is 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds long.
The object "very likely" disintegrated before touching the ground, Mexican authorities said.
The space rock will fly past our planet at a distance of around 3.6 million miles.
"These selected missions have the potential to transform our understanding of some of the solar system's most active and complex worlds," NASA's Thomas Zurbuchen said.
"This is quite a watershed moment in the field of planetary science," researcher Alan Stern told Newsweek.
Radiation from dying main sequence stars can cause asteroids to spin until they break up, researchers have found.
Space weather is driven by activity from the sun.
"It's an exciting time to be a solar physicist," said Valentin Pillet, director of the National Solar Observatory.
Fixing problems on Voyager is a tricky business given that it is currently located around 11.5 billion miles from Earth.
Aldrin, alongside fellow Apollo 11 crew member Neil Armstrong, touched down on the lunar surface at 8:17 p.m. UTC on July 20, 1969.
The "presolar grains" were extracted from a meteorite that crashed in Australia 50 years ago.
These planets are roughly the size of Jupiter, however, they are around a hundred times lighter.
The results could have significant implications for space weather prediction, particle physics experiments on Earth and our understanding of the sun's atmosphere.
The asteroid will travel past our planet at a staggering velocity of around 27,500 miles per hour.
"It's humbling to realize how small Earth is next to this visitor from another solar system," said Pieter van Dokkum from Yale University.
Hibernation technology may enable mission designers to reduce spacecraft mass by around a third.
Currently, we know of about roughly 25,000 near-Earth objects larger than 460 feet in diameter.
Researchers say that the object is moving around ten times faster than most stars in the galaxy.
This celestial event only takes place around 13 times a century.
"We are able to make measurements today that were just not possible during the years of the Apollo program," a NASA scientist said.
Mercury transits take place only around 13 times a century.
The space rock will come within around 2.7 million miles of our planet.
