Mile-wide asteroid, the largest yet of 2022, flies safely by Earth

A kilometer-wide asteroid passed Earth on Friday (May 27) at a distance about 10 times the space between the Earth and the moon.

Known as Asteroid 7335 (1989 JA), the asteroid is about four times the size of the Empire State Building and is the largest to have passed our planet so far in 2022. Viewers were able to follow the event live online via the Virtual Telescope Project (you can view the feed embedded below), thanks to a new collaboration that includes telescopes in Chile, Australia and Rome.
