Ceres and Vesta meet in the sky: online observing session (5 July 2014)
*** See Ceres and Vesta live here! ***
Next 5 July 2014, the dwarf planet Ceres and the asteroid Vesta will apparently meet in the same spot in the sky: they will be less than 10 arc-minutes apart, being an easy target for small scopes. Their last conjunction was in 1996, but at that time they were more than two degrees apart.
At Virtual Telescope we planned to show live this rare event, for free, thanks to our robotic telescopes and our live webTV.
The online, free session is scheduled for 5 July 2014, starting at 20:00 UT.
