A newly created asteroid will revert to Earth today (November 10th) and you can follow the interloper live journey online.
The Asteroid 2018 VX1, which scientists consider will be 18 to 18 meters wide (8 to 18 meters), will reach about 380,000 kilometers of our planet during this transition. It is closer to the moon, which circulates around the Earth with an average distance of approximately 239,000 km (384,600 km).
The Virtual Telescope Project will start broadcasting in 2018 VX1 on Saturday, starting at 1:00. EST (18:00 GMT). You can watch the show that lives here at Space.com, or directly through the Virtual Telescope project.
The 2018 VX1 was discovered only last week, November 4th. The asteroid takes about 1.6 Earth years to complete one circle around the sun. There is no danger of impact on this planet of our planet, scientists say.
Two newly discovered asteroids will exceed the Earth's neighborhood on Saturday morning, although no one will reach nearly as close as the 2018 VX1. 2018 VS1 and 2018 VR1, which were also first observed last week, will travel at distances of approximately 800,000 miles (1.3 million km) and 3.1 million kilometers (5 million kilometers).
Such a surprising visit only strengthens the asteroids close to Earth (NEAs) and only a few astronomers have noticed it. The number of millions of NEAs is counted in number, but researchers have so far discovered and discovered only 19,000 such items.

But there are some good news: the cataclysmic risk, the potential impact on the end of civilization is low, at least for now. Scientists believe that more than 90 percent of the NEA's mountain sizes have been found and none of them in the near future poses no danger.
