ST4v predicts that it will be visible from the southern hemisphere after the close approach. Predicted peak brightness is 15.7 magnitude when it will be in Pictor, but below the horizon. It should be visible on Jul 24 ~4-5AM local Brisbane time moving through Dorado at 15.8 magnitude, but slowed to 19.1"/min.
