Asteroid 2002 AJ129 close flyby 5th to 7th Feb

Recommended Posts

I'd not seen this anywhere else, apologies if it has already been posted. Another two potential nights to catch it at brighter than mag 13, moving quite fast by the looks of it.

I think Mag 13 with a 4" where I am is probably pushing it, but larger scopes and/or better skies should get it.
