2022 ES3 visible in Japan
#1
Hi MP Hunters,

The NEO 2022 ES3 is predicted to reach maximum brightness of 16.6 magnitude at midnight on March 14 in Japan. It will be 439,000 km from earth moving at 400"/min. through Ursa Major.

With the nearly full moon interfering, a large scope will be needed to observe this fast-moving object.

Good luck,

Phil S.

Pretty sure I caught a cricket ball travelling at that speed with my bare hand once. It turned my hand to a swollen jelly (and I didn't hold on to it)

Maybe that speed, but that large? Sure would leave a mark and on more than your hand, too. Ouch!
