Astronomers have rediscovered a "lost" asteroid just a few days before it makes a close pass by Earth.

The diameter range of 2010 WC9 is estimated to be between 197 and 427 feet, while the size of the Chelyabinsk meteor is around 65 feet. The observatory will stream it live on Facebook beginning Monday, May 14 at midnight local United Kingdom time, so viewers can see 2010 WC9 in space before it begins its approach past Earth.

Although asteroids coming close to Earth are no longer unusual and scary, judging by the number of asteroids that have passed next to our planet's orbit just in this year alone, people still worry whether there would be an impact that could cause catastrophic consequences.

WeekFacts.com reported that the asteroid measures from 60 to 130 meters and moves at a speed of more than 28,000 miles per hour.

He has shared a text message conversation which occurred the day before she passed away. In addition to the new tracks, he took to Instagram to write: "Happy Mother's Day ".

One interesting tidbit about this asteroid is that it was first observed on November 30, 2010, and was watched until December 10 of the same year before it became too dim to see and was lost.

During its closest approach at 6:05 p.m. EDT on May 15, 2010 WC9 will be at 0.53 lunar-distances from Earth.

According to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, this is the closest it will come in 300 years, the report said.

Unfortunately, the asteroid will not light up brightly enough to be visible to the naked eye, but small telescopes could aid you in the endeavour.

Nearly eight years later, astronomers realized that an asteroid they temporarily called ZJ99C60 was actually 2010 WC9 returning.

"The broadcast will be less than 25 minutes in duration, as the asteroid will cross our field of view within that period of time", he added.

That's about half of the distance between Earth and the Moon!

"The asteroid will be moving quite rapidly (30 arc seconds per minute)".

But even if you don't have a telescope, you can still see the asteroid Tuesday night thanks to a livestream from Northholt Branch Observatories in London. "We, of course, collect astrometric data while this happens, but the movement of the asteroid will occur every five seconds", said Wells.
