Massive ‘potentially hazardous’ asteroid spotted before safe flyby

A space rock is streaking through the sky in fresh imagery captured just before the asteroid makes a safe flyby of Earth.

The Virtual Telescope Project imaged the skyscraper-size asteroid 2022 RM4 in space when it was just over 1.9 million miles (3.1 million km) from our planet on Oct. 31, ahead of an expected live broadcast (opens in new tab) today (Nov. 1) at 1 p.m. EDT (1700 GMT).
