CNEOS predicts that the NEO (531944) 2013 CU83 will make a close approach on July 30 23:34±<00:01 UT at a distance of 0.04652 AU. H=21.3, 'Rarity'=1. Using orbital elements for 2022 August 9 0000 UT, ST4v predicts that this Amor class NEO will reach peak brightness of 16.0 magnitude on July 30 at 00:00 EDT at 0.05 AU distance. It will be moving through Scutum at 10.4"/min. It will fade slowly to 16.4 magnitude as it moves into Aquila & Serpens Cauda slowing to 9.38"/min on August 4.

Here's an Interactive Atlas chart showing the predicted path from Columbus, Ohio from July 29 to August 3: [attachment=2439]

This NEO has been on the CNEOs website for quite a while & it's finally arrived. It's not especially bright or fast, but it will stick around for a few days.

Good hunting,
