The potentially hazardous asteroid 2024 CR9 was discovered on 15 Feb. 2024 by the Panstarrs Survey. Its diameter is estimated in the 330 – 750 meters range, while the minimum distance will be reached on 11 June, at 00:03 UTC (source: Nasa/JPL). Of course, there are no risks at all for our planet.

The Virtual Telescope Project will show it live, online, exactly at the time of its fly-by with the Earth. This way, you can spot this rock in real-time from the comfort of your home.

The live feed will start on 10 June 2024, at 23:45 UTC.
