Tune In to See New Asteroid 12:15 PST and Prepare for Comet PanSTARRS

Hey Space Placers!

Tune in here to see the flyby of the newly discovered asteroid 2013 ET

The live broadcast begins at 12:15 PST/3:15 EST. This 500 foot long rock was discovered just last Sunday and will pass 2.5 lunar distances so no worry for impact.

Tomorrow I will have Comet PanSTARRS info so you can search for this icy interloper this week. Today try and find an observing location that is clear of buildings and trees in along your western horizon. Also have a pair of binoculars ready and a tripod for your camera.

Enjoy the show and prepare for next week's sky show today!
