Traffic Report  on 1 June '13

No objects reported inside ten LD

No objects are reported within ten lunar distances (LD) of Earth today, but returning 2009 FE arrives inside ten LD tomorrow.

This report was generated at 1401 UTC.



Notes: Ten times the distance to the Moon (ten LD) has no astronomical significance but is a useful reporting boundary. Object distances are interpreted by A/CC from JPL Horizons data. See also current sky chart and object details (alt-details), ephemerides, and today's timeline.
