Potentially Hazardous Asteroid 2014 HQ124 close approach: online observing session (10 June 2014)
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.
