    A newly discovered asteroid as big as a football pitch has passed by relatively close to the Earth. Named Asteroid 2013, it is the latest in a flurry of visiting celestial objects. Although impossible to see with the naked eye, scientists using a telescope based at the Canary Islands Observatory broadcast live images via the web.
