Asteroid day 2016 at Virtual Telescope Project

The amazing Asteroid Day is approaching and, as you know, the Virtual Telescope will offer several great online events, with amazing guests and more.

But not only we want to offer our own activities to you: we also want to support you organizing your own Asteroid Day event! We do this by offering you some of our stunning images and videos showing some of these near-Earth objects! Virtual Telescope is one of the best facilities tracking these exotic rocks: our technology is just perfect for tracking any asteroid, no matter how fast it is moving in the sky. You will not find better stuff this this one from us.

Below you will find some of these images, with links to the best resolution version. These images are free to use, for not commercial purposes only, but you must put this credit visible: “This image is a courtesy of the Virtual Telescope Project – www.virtualtelescope.eu – for Asteroid Day“. Of course, we  would appreciate to know you are using them, so please drop us a line!

The images/video below are just a small sample of our huge asteroid collection: check it out here the whole collection.
