Watch a bus-sized asteroid safely zoom past Earth within the moon’s orbit

Anyone with a strong Internet connection can watch a bus-sized asteroid make a safe flyby of Earth today (April 26).

Weather permitting, the Virtual Telescope Project plans to livestream live telescopic views of the recently found asteroid 2022 HB1. The asteroid will pass within about 52% of the moon’s orbit. The broadcast starts at 2:30 pm EDT (1830 GMT) and you can watch it in the video feed above or directly from The Virtual Telescope Project.
