Watch a small asteroid fly past Earth in a free live stream on March 16

The near-Earth asteroid 2023 EY will pass close to Earth on Thursday night (March 16), and you can watch it live thanks to a free telescope live stream.

Asteroid 2023 EY is about 16 meters across and is expected to pass within 239,800 kilometers of Earth’s surface on Thursday, or just about 62% of the mean lunar distance (opens in new tab), according to astronomer Gianluca Masi of the Virtual Telescope Project. While this makes the encounter very close astronomically, there is no chance that 2023 EY will affect our planet based on its current trajectory.
