Next 8 June 2014, at 05:57 UT, the Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (PHA) 2014 HQ124 will make a close encounter with the Earth. This ~320 meters large asteroid will reach a minimum distance of 1.3 millions of km from us, so really no risks of collisions, just a nice chance for spotting this little body in the sky.

The Virtual Telescope Project will offer a live, online event sharing real-time images of 2014 HQ124 with live commentary by our scientific staff.

The online, free session is scheduled for 10 June 2014, starting at 20:00 UT.

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