Tonight's Sky for September 7: Asteroid 2014 RC Buzzes Earth


Tonight, a house-sized asteroid will come within 25,000 miles of Earth. Not to worry, there's absolutely no chance of a collision according to the experts at NASA. For more good news, at close approach, the asteroid will shine at about magnitude +11.5, which is well within reach of amateur astronomers with medium to large telescopes, provided that you know where to look in the constellation of Pisces. Needless to say, this ephemeris will be quite useful.
