(KGTV) - An asteroid the size of a bus is expected to fly past Earth Friday morning.
Experts say the asteroid named 2018 DV1 will come within 70,000 miles of our planet's surface at about 9:30 a.m. Pacific time.
The asteroid will be the 18th to pass between Earth and the moon in 2018.
A powerful telescope will be needed to see the asteroid across the sky, but for those without one, the Virtual Telescope Project will have a livestream available starting at 9:30 a.m.
