On 19 April 2017, at 12:24 UT, the Potentially Hazardous Asteroid 2014 JO25 will reach it's closest distance to the Earth - about 1.7 millions of km. This is a very safe distance, so no risks at all for our planet. The Virtual Telescope Project will be holding a live viewing of this event. It will be a nice opportunity to spy this ~ 1 km large large asteroid moving across the stars, visible with small telescopes and binoculars.
