Ready to hunt for low-flying space rocks? We've got an interesting pass of a Near Earth Asteroid this upcoming U.S. Labor Day weekend one that just slides over the +10th magnitude line into binocular range.
We're talking about asteroid 3122 Florence which passes 4.4 million miles from our fair planet (that's 7 million kilometers, about 18 times the distance from Earth to the Moon) this Friday on September 1st at 12:06 Universal Time (UT)/ 8:06 AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT).
