The object appears to be an old rocket from a failed moon-landing mission decades ago, finally making its way back to Earth.
The three crew members abroad relocated to the Soyuz spacecraft as the manoeuvre began, to evacuate if necessary.
The distance to the object was also determined by scientists using a special, powerful 'geodetic' laser.
Decades of space exploration has led to a build-up of more than five lakh pieces of useless artificial objects in space.
The core stage of the rocket was launched on 5 May before re-entering Earth’s atmosphere and crashing off the west coast of northwest Africa.
A US Airforce unit that detects and tracks artificial objects in Earth’s orbit, has identified 65 pieces from the incident.
The mission, ClearSpace-1, is to find and capture Vespa’s upper stage left in orbit after Vega's launch in 2013.
SpaceX cited a bug in its satellite's OS prevented it from seeing the collision risk with ESA's Aeolus satellite.
The simulation shows how the inner accretion disk aligns perfectly with the black hole's equator even if the outer part is angled.
He says whatever is left of the debris will dissipate in a "short period of time".
SpaceX has now announced that 1,584 broadband satellites will be placed into orbit at 550 km.
Pentagon defends Mission Shakti ASAT test, says India has cause to be concerned over 'threats to nation from space'
US Strategic Command Commander General John E Hyten told members of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee that the first lesson from the Indian ASAT is that they (India) are concerned about threats to their nation from space.
The company will conduct a demonstration in 2020 to try and nudge out space debris out of orbit.
Neither of 2 letters to ISRO mentions the upcoming Chandrayaan-2 mission or its NASA instruments.
There was a temporary risk for 10 days, but we have crossed that period, an official told reporters.
DRDO says India chose much lower orbit for A-SAT test to avoid threat of debris to global space assets
On Tuesday, the NASA had termed a "terrible thing" India's shooting down of one its satellites, saying the hit-to-kill mission created about 400 pieces of orbital debris.
Pakistan 'deeply concerned' over space debris from India's ASAT test, says 'military dimension' of move can't be overlooked
Pakistan on Tuesday expressed "deep concern" over the assessment of international experts on the threats resulting from space debris generated by the recently conducted Anti-Satellite missile (ASAT) test by India
Risk of collision with the ISS has increased by 44 percent over 10 days: NASA Chief.
DRDO chief said a low-altitude military satellite was picked to reduce the risk of debris left in space.
The vast majority of missions to space over the years – manned or unmanned – have been to low-Earth Orbit (LEO).
