2018 FE4
#2
Neither CNEOS nor the MPC list a close approach by this object on their websites in September 2022. Interestingly the CNEOS's Orbit Viewer shows this NEO approaching within 0.061 AU on 2022 Sep 29. Their table of close approaches shows nothing in 2022. I've seen this happen with other objects. With H=24.7 it's unlikely to be 16.1 magnitude.

I've had many objects turn up in ST4v DB Power Searches that weren't on the CNEOS & MPC websites. Some objects like 2018 FE4 weren't in the close approach table, but the orbit viewer indicated that a close approach should have been expected. Frequently CNEOS was using an epoch of the elements around the time of discovery, but that doesn't explain why the MPC didn't indicate a close approach. They have elements calculated for today's date.

How did you find this one?
