A large asteroid designated 2019 OD will fly between Earth and Moon on July 24, 2019. 2019 DO is an Apollo-class asteroid first observed at ATLAS-HKO, Haleakala, Hawaii on July 21, three days before close approach. This is the 31st known asteroid to flyby Earth within 1 lunar distance since the start of the year and the largest.
Spectacular scenes could be witnessed in our skies in late July, thanks to the Southern Delta Aquarid and Alpha Capricornid meteor showers. But that's not all. The Perseids are also here! You don't need any special equipment or a lot of skills to view a meteor shower. All you really need is a clear sky and lots of patience. Clear Skies Everyone!
