A bus-sized asteroid is  & you can watch for free

passing safely by Earth today

A space rock 

 at least the size of a bus will safely whiz by our planet today 

The Virtual Telescope 

 Project will broadcast the flyby of asteroid 2022 NF from Rome, Italy, where the project is situated. 

If weather conditions 

 allow, you can watch the livestream starting at 4 p.m.  

At a nearest approach 

 of 56,000 miles (90,000 kilometers), 2022 NF will come within about 23% of the distance to our moon. 

The flyby event is 

 the project's tribute to 2022's Asteroid Day, according to Virtual Telescope Project founder Gianluca Masi. 

Asteroid Day is an

Asteroid Foundation annual promotion of space rocks and planetary defense research that takes place on June 30.
