A colossal asteroid will cruise by Earth today, and you’ll actually be able to see it – BGR

In fact, it’ll be close enough that amateur astronomers will even be able to catch a glimpse of it. If you have a decent consumer-grade telescope you’ll be able to observe Florence as it passes by, and the folks over at Sky & Telescope have put together a great guide on where and when to look for the rock in the sky. Florence won’t make another close pass around these parts for several hundred years, and NASA says we won’t be seeing it until sometime after the year 2500, so if you have a chance to catch a glimpse of it yourself, now will be your last opportunity, unless you discover the secret of immortality.
