* varying degrees of atmospheric pollution
ITOKAWA will gradually close to earth and, on June 26, 2004, it will be closest to earth with distance of 0.013AU (about 1.95 million km). But, unfortunately, it will be then located at the south hemisphere. It is estimated that the asteroid will become about twelfth magnitude (about 1,500 times brighter compared to the present).

This dust could conceivably come from Solar winds blowing it from Venus' atmosphere during its Transit, or from Earth entering a not so "clean" patch of Space: urgently needed, a Space Vacuum Cleaner...
