CLOSE APPROACHES

Last update: 2022-12-04 20:41 UTC

Every month dozens of NEAs come within 0.05 au of Earth. The following table presents the list of these forthcoming and recent close approaches, with details concerning the encounter circumstances.

Among the quantities in the table is the maximum brightness reached by the object at the close approach, useful to estimate its observability during the encounter. Note that when the encounter occurs in daylight the maximum brightness value is incremented by 100 to highlight that the geometry is unfavourable for observations. For a detailed description see the "Definitions and Assumptions" page. Entries are by default sorted by date, but the sorting can be changed by clicking on the table headers.

1 au = 149597870.7 km


1 LD = 384399 km
