Navigation tips: Use the << and >> arrows on the menus for each regular section (Observers, Risks, etc.) to move to the previous and next day's news for that section. Use the Index menu item to access specific days through a calendar interface. And use the all-up news archive to access news from any time since A/CC began in early 2002. To keep track of what's new each day, watch the Chronology section.

Impact Risk Monitoring on 9 June '09
Notes for Today's Latest Risk Assessments
|2009 KK||NEODyS||1330||2022||1||1.11e-04||-1.12||-1.12||1||NEODyS: "Based on 98 optical observations (of which 0 are rejected as outliers) from 2009/05/17.261 to 2009/06/06.103. NOTE: The Virtual Impactor in 2022/05/29.761 ... is rated as Torino Scale 1."|
An impact solution, also known as a "virtual impactor" (VI), is not a prediction but rather a possibility derived from a variant orbit calculation that cannot be eliminated yet based on the existing data. Elimination can come quickly with just a little further observation or may take weeks or months, sometimes years. Once superceded or eliminated, a former impact solution has zero relevance to an object's risk. See Jon Giorgini's "Understanding Risk Pages" to learn more.
