2019 EA2: close approach

This asteroid is currently in the constellation Ophiuchus and should now be within reach of amateur imagers. Its closest approach is expected in the early hours of March 22, although it is diving south in the celestial sphere, so sooner is better if you'd like to catch it from northern parts.

You can find more information about the object here:

Where you can click through and generate ephemerides for the object with HORIZONS.

The forecast weather for the north east of England is not good unfortunately.

Southern weather

Weather down south also looks poor. Moon will be full too.

Good point, Grant.
