Near-Earth Asteroid 2020 SW extremely close encounter: online observations – 23 Sept. 2020
On 24 Sept. 2020, the near-Earth Asteroid 2020 SW will have an extremely close, but safe, encounter with us, coming at about 27000 km from the Earth, 7% of the average lunar distance. The Virtual Telescope Project will show it to you live!
The near-Earth asteroid 2020 SW, discovered by the Mt. Lemmon survey on 18 Sept. 2020 and announced the following day by the Minor Planet Center, has an estimated diameter in the range 4.3 – 9.7 meters (source: Nasa/JPL). 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.
We will show this asteroid live, online: the feed will start on 23 Sept., at 22:00 UTC.
