T MINUS - 4 hrs till FREE LIVE EVENT - Giant Asteroid 4179 Toutatis info and FREE Live Broadcast Link - For those interested
A little info

A giant asteroid is set to buzz Earth next week, and astronomers are already keeping their eyes on the skies—but not because 4179 Toutatis poses any danger.

Toutatis, at 2.7 miles (4.46 kilometers) long and 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) wide, is one of the largest asteroids that comes anywhere near Earth. But only an astronomer would consider its closest approach to be "near." When the peanut-shaped rock is at its closest to the Earth on December 12, it'll be more than 4.3 million miles (6.9 million kilometers) away, or more than 18 times the distance from the Earth to the moon.

SLOOH SPACE CAMERA BROADCAST

They will be broadcasting live images of Toutatis in a couple of FREE public shows on the night of the 11th/12th Dec.

They'll be setting up three of the Slooh robotic telescopes to track the asteroid, including the Half Metre telescope. Details and timings of the shows are on the Slooh homepage.

The observatory is in the Canary Islands which is 4-7hrs ahead of USA time so the shows are at an ideal time for those who can't stay up late on a working day. We'll also broadcast a late show at the time of closest approach (2012-12-12T06:40UTC) with live images from Arizona, together with some popular objects using the Half Metre telescope at the Canary Islands Observatory.

There are also a couple of other NEOs making their closest approaches a few hours after Toutatis, so They'll probably track those too.

Request temporary 5 hr PIN for those who'd be interested in watching this asteroid and if they broadcast the few after it.
