    The Virtual Telescope Project is proud to invite you to a very spectacular online event, almost a once in a lifetime chance.

    On 15 Feb. 2013, asteroid 2012 DA14 will make a record approach to our planet, reaching a minimum distance of less than 30.000 km (!), significantly less than many artificial satellites. Of corse, no risks at all for our planet, just a very spectacular event!

    This rock, with a diameter around 50 meters and an estimated mass of 130.000 tons, will make the closest approach we can predict so far in the future, considering the whole asteroids known to date.

    We are proud to offer you a chance to see this asteroid in real time, online, for free. On Feb 15, at 22:00 Universal Time, we will broadcast live images through the web, with the live commentary of our acclaimed scientific staff.

    As usual, you will just need to join our live WebTV page.
