    Asteroid 2013 ET imaged by the Virtual Telescope

    While on its approaching route, asteroid 2013 ET was imaged by the Virtual Telescope robotic facility in Italy. This about 100-meters large asteroid will reach a minimum distance of about 950.000 km from us next March 9. It is worth to underline that there are NO risks at all of collision.

    On March 4, the Planewave 17 robotic unit pointed this object and its Paramount ME robotic mount tracked the asteroid, so it looks like a point of light, while stars are trailed. The image above is the average of three, 90 seconds exposures.

    The Virtual Telescope will show this asteroid live, online, next 8 Mar. 2013, at 19:00 UT! Join the event for free here!
