NEO Made a Close Flyby on Halloween Wow it was ~ 4.60 (Metaphorical) inches From a Basketball Size Earth


A 1  to 7 meters NEO made a close approache  on Halloween  it was ~ 4.60 (Metaphorical) Inches from a Basketball Size Earth. This asteroid discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey  and given the observer-assigned temporary designation. C0PPEV1(Now  2019 UN13) So far there is 18 observations from four observing stations over 3.7 hours. This object has gone out of range telescopes so new observations  runs will have wait until  2019 UN13 comes back in range(if ever).

If  the Earth was the size of a basketball  how far would the Moon [and the NEO Earth Close Approaches  be]? 
  Given the fact it was  the 2nd closest approache it is making buzz online ---by the way  it is too small to do anything.

Tonight(2019-Oct-28/29) the NEO 2019 UB8 (4.4 m - 9.7 m) will do a flyby(A.K.A NEO Earth Close Approaches) of a Nominal Distance of 0.50 LD (0.00127 AU) ~191,000 KM (~ 119,000 miles). Sorting by nominal distance, this close approach is listed in the top 270 of 22,500+ entries in JPL's close approach database. (As of 2019-Oct-28) Flybys within one LD are quite common from what we "know" NEOs flybys within one LD a few times every week or so.

What is Close

Close is a relative term. "Close" to a major sports venue is not the same as "close" to the ER. If one were to think of a basketball-size Earth, it may in understanding what is "close" and what is "far." In this, basketball-size Earth system, the ISS would be at ~0.76 CM (0.3 inches); we had NEO Flybys at 10.35 CM (4.1 inches) [ 2011 CQ1 on 2011-Feb-04] before. The Moon would range from ~673.41 CM (~22.0 Ft) to ~753.81 CM (~24.7 Ft). 2019 UB8 will be ~347.62 CM (~11.4 Ft) from the basketball. To see 2019 UB8 tonight, check out the Virtual Telescope Project.
