Update: You can watch the asteroid flyby on the video above for yourself thanks to A Live broadcast From the Virtual Telescope Project, which will begin at 1:00 PM ET on February 2.

A “potentially dangerous” asteroid the size of a football field will safely pass by Earth on Friday (February 2), making it the closest we have come to our planet in more than 100 years. It will also be at least several centuries before this space rock comes close to us again.
