The asteroids 18 Melpomene, 20 Massalia and 23187 (2000 PN9) will all coincidentally achieve their greatest brilliances for their current apparitions on 2011 MAR 06. The latter 3 km-wide asteroid is noted because it will pass only 0.116 AU from Earth on MAR 10. Iíve created charts for them that can be seen by clicking: http://www.curtrenz.com/asteroids

Your photos and comments about these asteroids would be welcome additions to this thread.
