Near-Earth Asteroid 2013 RL6 approaching the Earth (7 June 2013)


The Near-Earth Asteroid 2013 LR6 was observed live and shared online on our website with thousands of people joining from all around the globe. At the time of the image above it was at about 300.000 km from us, within the orbit of the Moon. This 5-15 meters large body is not going to hit us, this is a VERY safe passage.

More details are on the image.
