Buzzed by 2022 KQ5 today
This NEO came within 0.00027 AU (0.105 LD) at 17:40 UT today. At that time, it was moving through Scutum at 23.8"/sec. The peak brightness predicted by ST4v was 13.2 magnitude. The estimated size is 3-8 meters.

This NEO was first detected at Mt Lemmon on May 26 when it was 22.3 magnitude. It was just added to the MPC's NEAs at Today's Epoch datafile today, so not chance to give a heads up. Since it would have been above the southern hemisphere clouds anyway,  Sad Sad.
