(PS. Don't read the Minor Planet Center editorial notice (http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/mpec/K07/K07V70.html).)

See topic Non-NEO Alert! (http://www.bautforum.com/astronomical-observing-equipment-accessories/66859-non-neo-alert.html)

Or, maybe in the spirit of this topic: don't see that other topic.

I was wondering why the chart on Spaceweather.com didn't mention VN84.
