Original post 15 February: Asteroid 2012 DA14 will fly past the Earth today and it is being tracked from the Canaries by several of the telescopes of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC). Thanks to the European Space Agency, you can watch it online HERE, HERE or HERE from around 7pm this evening. For those who have telescopes or astronomical binoculars, it should be visible from the Canaries around 8.30pm: there is a guide to viewing on the IAC’s website HERE.
