2022 GS3 in the Southern Hemisphere
#1
The recently discovered MP 2022 GS3 is predicted to make a close approach to earth. Using elements from the MPC for 2022 Apr 10, the NEA is predicted to reach a peak brightness of 15.3 magnitude. Best visibility is from the southern hemisphere on the evening of Apr 13 & the morning of Apr 14 when it will be moving rapidly through Lupus & Norma. Here's a chart of the predicted path as seen from Aukland Observatory:     

Maximum motion is predicted to be >100"/min!

I hope you guys get some decent weather for once.
Good hunting,

Phil S.
