Next 2 May 2015, at 03:51 UT, the 15-meters large asteroid 2015 HQ117 will made a very close, but safe approach with the Earth, reaching a minimum distance of less than 460.000 km, that is 1.2 lunar distances.

We wish to underline this is a safe distance, but still a very spectacular event, so  the Virtual Telescope Project will offer a live, online event sharing real-time images of 2015 HQ117 with live commentary by our scientific staff.

The online, free session is scheduled for 02 May 2014, starting at 00:00 UT.

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