An asteroid worth a potential £3.5 trillion ($5.4 trillion) is due to pass by Earth on Sunday, and you can watch it live from 11pm UK time (6.30pm ET).

Asteroid 2011 UW-158’s fly-by will be streamed live on the internet from an observatory in the Canary Islands.

Asteroid 2011 UW-158 will pass within 1.5 million miles (2.4 million km) from Earth on Sunday – 30 times closer than our nearest planet.
