Bus-Size Asteroid Will zip Safely by Earth Today

We can have a chance to witness a newfound near-Earth asteroid, called 2018 DV1, on Friday.

2018 DV1 is about the size of a bus and will approach within 70,000 miles (113,000 kilometers) of Earth during its flyby, according to scientists with NASA’s Asteroid Watch program.

The asteroid, about 23 feet (7 meters) wide, can be seen as a pinprick of light in the sky in a live webcast, reports Fox news.

The Virtual Telescope Project will host a free webcast, led by astrophysicist Gianluca Masi in Ceccano, Italy, for the event.
