If You Could See All The Asteroids, What Would The Sky Look Like?

Scott Manley made an amazing 360 video that shows the 5,000 asteroids we know about it in orbit.


Scott: “I took all the asteroids near the Earth, calculate their positions and place them on a virtual Sky sphere. I can turn on the asteroid and make them visible as it they are stars.” he said to the dailymail.

Video: Click play and you can pan the view around the video.


Besides, Asterank, a scientific and economic database of asteroids has made a 3D interactive asteroid space visualization of over 600,000 asteroids.

Click on Asterank.com/3D/ and you can scroll and pan over the 3D visualization.
