2004 BL86 Encounter


Get out your binoculars Рthe evening of January 26/27 arrives with asteroid 2004 BL86.  A measly 3 LD (three times the distance from Earth to the Moon), and walloping 650-950 meters across Р2004 BL86 will safely pass, no cause for alarm, and barely noticed. Not to be seen  again for 200 years Рat the very least gaze skyward, and thank the cosmos for another near miss.
