Asteroid 2023 BU passed Earth on Thursday night (January 26) to the delight of amateur astronomers around the world. For skywatchers without access to a telescope, or for those whose visibility was hampered by inclement weather, fortunately an Italy-based virtual telescope project observed the event and live-streamed everything for free.

Virtual Telescope is a robotic telescope operated by Italian amateur astronomer Gianluca Masi near Rome, Italy. As a BU in 2023 rushed towards earththe telescope was able to track the rock through the clouds when it was about 13,670 miles (22,000 kilometers) from the nearest point on the Earth’s surface (about GPS navigation satellite constellation) and 22,990 miles (37,000 km) from the virtual telescope.
