NEO Approaches

The below near-earth objects are expected to approach the earth to a distance of less than 25.0 LD (0.064 AU) in the coming 3 months. The colors indicate the distance of a NEO: Orange for less than 0.05 AU, Red for less than 0.01 AU and Black for less than 0.0027 AU.

    Terminology:
            
    diameter est.:  Estimated diameter based on Hₒ and an albedo between 0.25 and 0.05. (So sizes may be over-estimated for icy objects)
    delta:          Distance between dwarf planet and earth in AU    
    magn:           Magnitude (brightness) estimate    
    LD:             Lunar distance (~0.0257 AU)
    AU:             Astronomical Unit (mean distance between earth and sun: 149597870.7 km    
    Hₒ:             Absolute magnitude (magnitude from a distance of 1 AU)
