Small pieces of rock, with a big influence (just ask the dinosaurs).

2023 Asteroid Close Approaches

Post by Christopher K. »

A majority of close approaches (defined here as three lunar distances or closer) will be posted here. A close approach that is closer than the Moon will receive its own thread also.

2023 BU
Thursday, 26 January 2023, 6:29pm CST
Classification: Apollo
Diameter: four to eight meters

121 observations (from 21 to 26 January) were used for this prediction. I could find no impact risk for 2023 BU. This asteroid (as most close-passers are) is not unaided-eye.
