Next 9 Aug. 2013 at 05:02 UT, the near-Earh asteroid 2005 WK4 will reach a minimum distance from the Earth of about 3.0 millions of km. This is a very safe distance, so no risks at all for our planet. It will be a nice opportunity to spy this 400 meters large asteroid moving across the stars.

As usual with these asteroids, the Virtual Telescope Project will offer a live, online event sharing real-time images of 2005 WK4 with live commentary by our scientific staff.

The online, free event is scheduled for 9 Aug. 2013, starting at 0:00 UT.

To join, you just need to enter, at the date and time above, our webTV page here!
