Newfound Asteroid Will Fly Close by Earth Thursday (space.com)

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.

Hopefully second time is a charm...

In case any of you guys missed the Perseids (thank you very much Charlotte) Astronomy.com has a nice time lapse video over a three day period:

Hi:

I'm a new member, just found Atheist Nexus, and very glad to be here. Just completed a new scope using a mirror I have had for a couple of years. Like any other ATM, I love to share it. Info available here.

Thanks for being here!

How nice to find this group! I founded the Southern Oregon Skywatchers in 1993 and have been an avid amateur astronomer for twenty years. Got my chemistry degree at age 44; if my local university had had a degree in astronomy I would have gotten that instead.
