1999 KW4 measures about I mile wide and is accompanied by a smaller satellite with an orbit of about 16 hours , the pair are traveling at around 48,000 mph


1999 KW4 will pass several times the distance between the Earth and Moon so causes no danger to us , it won't return until 2036.
Telescope owners have sighting opportunities from yesterday until Monday , here's a view of the asteroid yesterday transiting the sky.

I wonder what kind of research material LINEAR is able to collect?

Keep your eye on that asteroid, while we watch it fly by, it's army of cloaked three foot asteroids will pelt New York. Of course there will be those who will blame the Russians for sending the army of stones.

I wonder that can it pick up hitchhikers.

And is a two way ticket possible?

Sorry.

"Smaller satellite"?....I see discrimination here. Why only the big one has a name?

In theory, if one would want to send probes on the surface to collect samples and,, well just test equipment, and would use unmanned probes, it would take more or less a hundred hours with older tech.

And we have come a long way since new horizons, so i would imagine that the probes would have needed to be sent on their way on the 23rd.

The "moon" may give it an unstable orbit. Lets hope it doesn't hit the Earth or our moon next time around.

Yes and it seems Peru had an 8.0 quake that was felt on opposite side of earth,they never mention when objects come into our orbit they have a devastating effect,we live in an electric universe,these planets have an obvious effect on earth,they are scavengers of energy
