Summary, in English

The asteroid 3122 Florence flew past the Earth in early September 2017 and astronomers managed to capture images showing that it had two moons in orbit around it.
In this planetarium show we discuss the asteroids in our Solar System, what we know about them, how large they are, how many there are and what we could do if we discovered one on a collision course with Earth.
