    That looks fun!

    Also check this out, found it on a site looking into the asteroid. The idea of a Planck star as black holes is very interesting!

    Astrophysicists duo propose Planck star as core of black holes

    Custom tables (updated daily) showing future and past NEO close-approach data...

    ...Also, a list of historic comet close approaches prior to 2006 is available here.

    Another NEA to be covered live:

    Link: 2014 DX110

    Next 5 Mar. 2014, at 21:07 UT, the 30-meters large asteroid 2014 DX110 will made a very close approach with the Earth, reaching a minimum distance of less than 350.000 km, that is 0.9 lunar distances.

    Of course, this is a very safe distance, but still a very spectacular circumstance, so the Virtual Telescope Project will offer a live, online event sharing real-time images of 2014 DX110 with live commentary by our scientific staff.
