Near-Earth Asteroid 2012 DA14 during its record close approach

Welcome to Asteroid Live, the first website in the world making possible for you to see, in real-time, near-Earth and potentially hazardous asteroids!

Thanks to the venerable experience and amazing technology of the acclaimed Virtual Telescope Project, and its staff professionally involved in near-Earth asteroid observations, you will be able to track these intriguing space objects, with live commentary from a professional astrophysicist, skilled in science communication and public outreach.

All this, from the comfort of your home, through your computer.

With us, you can join live, online observing sessions to visit these close approachers and discover more about them.

We plan to show live all asteroids coming closer than 10 lunar distances (that is, closer than 4 millions of km).

Feel free to visit our site and discover what we can do for you and passion for the sky!
