I saw it as it was rising last night. Didn't get out after dark to look at it. It was only 6 hours off of the equinox, IIRC.

Anyone see the Harvest Moon?

Two asteroids to pass near earth today Asteroid Double Whammy Near Earth Wednesday

Get out your telescopes! Two small asteroids will come within moon distance of Earth Wednesday.

The first, asteroid 2010 RX30, will come within 154,100 miles of Earth — about 60 percent of the Earth-moon distance — at 5:51 a.m. EDT (1251 UT). This asteroid is estimated to be about 42 feet across.

The second, 2010 RF12, will come almost 12 hours later, at 5:12 p.m. EDT (0012 UT Thursday). It will swing by Earth at just 20 percent the Earth-moon distance, or 47,845 miles. 2010 RF12 is even smaller, only about 23 feet across.

Newfound Asteroid Will Fly Close by Earth Thursday (

The asteroid will pass 9/10ths of the distance between the earth and the moon - 223,000 miles - so I would say no.

I tend to think that, with an object that small, you'd do much better to clothe your eyes (say, in a telescope).

Dont know this is a good question.

Will we be able to see this asteroid with our nekkid eyes?
