Forums Asteroids Heads up: nice NEO pass 2015 FP118

David Swan

This NEO will pass less than a third of a degree from Pherkad Major (UMi) at around 4am on 2nd September, when it is expected to be around mag 15. It is brightening rapidly at the moment. Here is an animation of its movement from 2018/08/30 21:16:33 – 21:22:47 UT taken from Tynemouth, UK. What I presume to be a satellite also flashes by too!
