NASA in Final Preparations for November 8th Asteroid Flyby

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA scientists will be tracking asteroid 2005 YU55 with antennas of the agency’s Deep Space Network at Goldstone, CA, as the space rock safely flies past Earth slightly closer than the moon’s orbit on November 8th.

Scientists are treating the flyby of the 1,300-foot-wide (400-meter) asteroid as a science target of opportunity – allowing instruments on “spacecraft Earth” to scan it during the close pass.

Tracking of the aircraft carrier-sized asteroid will begin at 9:30am local time (PDT) on November 4th, using the massive 70-meter (230-foot) Deep Space Network antenna, and last for about two hours. The asteroid will continue to be tracked by Goldstone for at least four hours each day from November 6th through November 10th. Radar observations from the Arecibo Planetary Radar Facility in Puerto Rico will begin on November 8th, the same day the asteroid will make its closest approach to Earth at 3:28pm PST.
