While it's close approach is not as interesting as DA14 it is quite large. 3.4km at 57.5ld. The close approach was yesterday but it should stay 13th for the next few days. Just before midnight here in the central US is the best time. William

I managed to do both of my required observations last night just before the clouds rolled in to stay. I had to wait between bands but got it. Dim about 13.5 and moving pretty good. It should stay 13-14 for a few days.

I am slowly working on my AL Asteroid program and decided when I started to observe mostly NEO close approaches. So my program is taking a little longer to complete. This has also made my observing program more challenging since I don't choose the date and time of observations. I have to do my observations when the timing is just right.
