“Astronogamer” Scott Manley provides a view of the sky if all asteroids were visible in his first attempt at a YouTube 360-degree video. The video was created using a virtual sky sphere, and released for Asteroid Day 2015. In the video, Manley calls for more resources to be allocated to the discovery of asteroids that have the potential to impact the Earth, and asks viewers to sign a petition for that cause launched by the Asteroid Day Foundation.
