A 130,000-tonne asteroid is currently hurtling towards the Earth. Well, at least close to the Earth. Not AT Earth exactly, despite what recently happened in Russia.
A live view of the space rock’s approach from observatories in Australia, where it is nighttime, went live online around 11:30 a.m. ET, about three hours before the asteroid’s closest approach to Earth. Starting at 2 p.m., NASA will also be providing live commentary. Fun!
