On January 1er, the New Horizons spacecraft that flew over Pluto in 2015 will visit the asteroid Ultima Thule, located 6,5 billions of kilometers from the Earth.

The 2019 year is off to a flying start for astronomers. On the 1er January at 6h33, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft will come close to the Ultima Thule asteroid, which is now more than 6,5 billion kilometers from the Earth (about 45 times the Earth-Sun distance, well beyond beyond Neptune and Pluto). This will make it the farthest object of the Solar System to be visited by a space probe (Voyager probes, still in service, went much further but they did not fly over any object beyond Neptune). It is also the first time that a small object from the Kuiper Belt, the crown of icy objects beyond the orbit of Neptune, will be seen.
