The potentially hazardous asteroid 2008 OS7 was discovered on 30 July 2008 by the Catalina Sky Survey. Its diameter is estimated in the 210 – 480 meters range, while the minimum distance will be reached on 2 Feb., at 14:41 UTC (source: Nasa/JPL). Of course, there are no risks at all for our planet.

The Virtual Telescope Project will show it live, online, soon after its fly-by with the Earth. This way, you can have a look from the comfort of your home.

The live feed will start on 2 Feb. 2024, at 18:00 UTC.
