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

Near-Earth asteroid 2023 EY will pass close to Earth on Thursday evening (March 16), and you can watch it live thanks to a free telescope livestream.

Asteroid 2023 EY is about 52 feet (16 meters) across and is expected to pass within 149,000 miles (239,800 kilometers) of Earth’s surface on Thursday, or just about 62% of the average 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 orbit.
