Hello, astro-nuts!
Just a quick “heads up”: Asteroid 2003 UV11 will be flying past Earth Friday night, within “just” 1.2 million miles of us. The rock itself is nearly 2000 feet across, so if you have a telescope that can spot objects of around magnitude +12 or +13, have a look at the constellation Pegasus Friday night. Have a look at Tom’s Asteroid Flybys Page to see where the asteroid is located–you can customize it for your location and see when it is visible. Happy hunting!
