Next 30 June 2022, 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 eighth edition, after the first one in 2015 and the very successful 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 editions. More and more exciting events are coming. In December 2016 the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution A/RES/71/90, declaring 30 June International Asteroid Day.

To celebrate the 2022 edition of Asteroid Day, marking its 8th Anniversary, 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 a live view of the near-Earth asteroid 2022 NF, safely coming extremely close to the Earth.
