Close approach of 2012 PG6
#1
CNEOS predicts that this 170m-540m NEO will make a close approach on 2022 Sep 1 23:30±<00:01 UT at a distance of 0.05357 AU. H=20.3, 'Rarity'=1, Condition Code=0. I almost missed ths one because it's just outside the 0.05 AU limit that I normally check.

ST4v predicts that this object will reach a peak brightness of 16.3 magnitude around midnight August 30 (EDT) when it will be moving from Lacerta into Cepheus ~22"/min. It's already predicted to be 16.4 magnitude tonight. Here's an Interactive Atlas chart showing the predicted path from Aug 27-Sep 1 as seen from Columbus, Ohio:     

The ephemeris calculated using MPC's elements for 2022 Aug 28 0000 UT is attached below.

Good hunting,

Phil S.
