ITALIANO: Qui il programma per Asteroid Day Italia!



Next 30 June 2018, anniversary of the 1908 Tunguska event, will be internationally celebrated as the “Asteroid Day“: it is “a global awareness movement where people from around the world come together to learn about asteroids and what we can do to protect our planet, our families, communities, and future generations“. This is the forth edition, after the first one in 2015 and the very successful 2016 and 2017 editions. More and more exciting events are coming.

The Virtual Telescope Project, the leading facility in the world sharing live, online the most spectacular near-Earth asteroids and their close encounters with our home planet, will officially offer you something memorable, for free. Activities both in English and Italian will be offered. Very special guests will unveil science, history and more about near-Earth Asteroids. Check this page often, as we update it continuously! We will be announcing what will happen very soon.
