2022 KD2 - PMSchu - 2022-05-27

This NEO is predicted to make a close approach on June 3 04:14 UT. Using ST4v, I predict that the peak brightness of 16.0 magnitude will occur around midnight EDT on June 2 when it will be in Scorpius passing between Antares & M4. This should make for an interesting image, if Antares doesn't blow everything out.

Here's the ST4v IA chart for this close approach:     

At least the MP's field will be easy to spot.
