Potentially Hazardous Asteroid 2014 JO25

Recommended Posts

2014 JO25 is a potentially hazardous asteroid with a diameter of 1.3 km. It will make a very close approach to Earth in a few hours, when it safely passes at 4.6 times the distance between Earth and the Moon – the closest any asteroid of that size will get in more than a decade.
At the time of imaging the asteroid was moving at 129"/min and was nearly half a magnitude fainter than the ephemeris predicted. Goldstone has determined that the asteroid is elongated, so a fainter magnitude is to be expected
