An asteroid with the diameter of two school buses is scheduled to pass the Earth at a rather close distance on Wednesday. Named 2014 DX110, the 98-foot asteroid was discovered by the Pan-STARRS 1 survey on Feb. 28, according to Universe Today.
The asteroid, racing at a speed of 32,000 miles per hour, will pass within 216,000 miles of our blue planet, which is closer to us than our moon is. It's an Apollo-class asteroid, a group of near-Earth asteroids first detected in 1932, and has an orbital period of 1192 days.
Slooh, which provides live viewing through a telescope, will be streaming the event on their website. You should be able to pick out the path of the asteroid against the black background as it zips between Earth and the moon.
