MP 2022 BB
#1
The MP 2022 BB has a predicted close approach on the evening of 2022 Jan 25 for North America & the morning of Jan 26 for Europe. The predicted peak brightness is 16.4 magnitude ~1800EST - twilight. Here is the predicted path as seen from the Houston, TX area: [attachment=2231]

The sky will still be too bright to observe at maximum brightness from Houston, unfortunately. Farther east the sky will be darker. At least we get a few days warning for this one & it's moving fairly fast. Today I downloaded the MPC's NEAs at Today's Epoch & MPCORB (in that order - probably should have reversed it). Back over 10^6  MPs in the database.

Good hunting,

Phil S.
