This year, hence the name, i would assume. This is only 62m diameter at .0015. FF to Mar 31 in the orbit diagram, change the Date interval from 1day to 1hour, then click through by hour. Closes approach dist is .0015AU = 224,400 km.
Lovejoy passes even closer, and I think was larger?? but you couldnt even see it with a naked eye. I dont anticipate any effects from this one.
However, I do find it curious that is not listed on the upcoming 'Close Approach Data'. OP, how did you find this?
I would definitely consider this a 'close approach'.
