So Sunday an asteroid will come within 7.8 Lunar Distances of Earth. And to me that sounds pretty close. Since it will have a mag of 18, does that
mean it will be visible? NASA Orbit map spaceweather.com
...nice find, so this will be about 1.5+ million miles from Earth, yet the NASA page shows the asteroid passing right through our orbit. I guess
we're in another part of that; anyone know could this affect weather/quakes somehow? Hmmm, tomorrow -- what time?
This is nothing. 7.8 LD's is still pretty far away. We see NEO's much closer than that all the time. In fact there is one going to be a closer one
on January 29, 2008. 2007 TU24 will come within 1.4 LD.
