Wellesley Teen Among Students Who Tracked Friday's Asteroid

A live online feed was set up to track the asteroid that whizzed by close to earth last Friday.


Just when we thought there would never be a local connection to the asteroid that flew unnervingly close by earth, comes this report from the Boston Globe: a Wellesley teen was among a small group to manage a live online feed that tracked the asteroid's path.

According to the Globe story, Sam Lapides, 17, of Wellesley, was one of three students monitoring a giant telescope on Friday at  Dexter and Southfield Schools in Brookline.

The Globe report says that Lapides was among the teens who closely followed the asteroid  through one of the biggest telescopes in the Boston area.
