Hey Space Placers!

Another asteroid is due to pass by Earth May 30-31 - 1998 QE2, a 1.7-mile wide space rock.

NASA has TV and telescope coverage planned for the event starting May 30th - see details here

NASA has also scheduled events during this flyby to discuss the Agency's asteroid mission initiative.

The asteroid will safely pass Earth by almost 4 million miles and will be tracked by optical and radar telescopes.
