Hey, Space Placers!
Here is the asteroid in my Unistellar eVscope 2 taken just now:

The media is giving big coverage to a BIG ASTEROID that harmlessly passed by Earth today at 4:51 pm EST at a distance of 1.2 million miles or almost 5x the distance to the Moon.
I am hoping to make a planetary defense observation of this space rock that is the size of the Golden Gate Bridge as soon as it gets dark tonight using my Unistellar telescope.
