Watch a Giant Asteroid Flyby Tomorrow

Barb Wire

In just over 24 hours, an asteroid the size of three double-decker buses will buzz our home planet at a distance of less than 217,000 miles away. That’s closer than the moon.

If you have a decent telescope, you’ll be able to see it streak through the sky at 33,000 mph. Otherwise, you can catch all the action with the Virtual Telescope Project.
