Please note: because of clouds, the live feed has been rescheduled: new date: 29 Apr. 2020, starting at 18:30 UTC.
Next 29 Apr. 2020, the Potentially Hazardous Asteroid (52768) 1998 OR2 will have a close, but safe, encounter with us, coming at about 6.3 millions of km from the Earth. The Virtual Telescope Project will show it to you live, online: join from your home!
The potentially hazardous asteroid (52768) 1998 OR2 has an estimated diameter in the range 1.8 – 4.1 km: this will make it quite bright around the time of the fly-by, so it will be visible through small instruments. The Virtual Telescope Project will show it live, thanks to its advanced technologies, bringing it to you via the Internet. This way, you can join the journey from the comfort of your home. Our online observing session will cover the final moments of its safe, close approach.
The live feed will start on 29 Apr. 2020 at 18:30 UTC.
