Traffic Report  on 14 October '13

Three objects reported inside ten LD

Three objects are reported to be inside ten lunar distances (LD) of our home world today. Within Earth's Hill sphere, 2013 TM127 comes its closest to Earth on this passage, reaching 3.03 LD at 0027 UT. Out further, risk-listed 2013 TX68 is headed away from 5.79 to 7.53 LD and risk-listed intruder 2013 RZ53 from 8.43 to 8.76 LD.

Radar target 2001 AV43 arrives inside ten LD on November 6th and radar target 2013 NJ arrives on November 19th.

This report was generated at 1625 UTC with today's DOU MPEC carrying follow-up for departed 2013 TD, adding 9.29 days to what had been a 2.77-day observation arc.



Notes: Ten times the distance to the Moon (ten LD) has no astronomical significance but is a useful reporting boundary. Earth's Hill sphere (of gravitational influence) is estimated to extend out to around 3.89 LD. 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.
