Astronomers are tracking a potentially hazardous asteroid that will pass by earth today.
The rock, titled "1994 PC1" is about 3,300 feet in diameter and is NOT expected to hit our planet, but will come within “round five times the distance between our planet and the moon,” with the closet pass happening around 4:50pm ET. It''ll be traveling at a speed of around 45,000 miles per hour.
The Virtual Telescope Project is set to host a livestream of the asteroid as it passes by. The online video is set to start at 3:00 p.m. ET on the Virtual Telescope Project's WebTV page.
