  • You asked, we answered! Join CSA astronaut Jenni Sidey-Gibbons and senior mission scientist Tim Haltigin as they answer some of the Internet’s most-asked questions about asteroids!

      

  • Canada’s NEOSSat has been closely monitoring comet 46P/Wirtanen, which you’ll be able to see with the naked eye in the coming days in a dark sky location. 46P/Wirtanen takes 5.4 years to complete an orbit around the Sun. As the comet approaches the Sun, its icy composition melts and produces a tail, which is seen as a fuzzy patch in the sky. Around December 16, comet 46P/Wirtanen should be at its brightest and closest to Earth – within 12 million km, or 30 times the Earth-to-Moon distance. That’s very close for a comet visiting us from far away in the solar system. (Don’t worry, though: there is no chance of the comet hitting Earth!)

NEOSSat is the world's first space telescope dedicated to detecting and tracking asteroids. It can also be used to monitor comets. It circles the globe every 100 minutes, scanning space near the Sun to pinpoint asteroids that may someday pass close to Earth.
