For the Geek Squad

Get the 2004XP14 ephemeris here.

(For those scratching their heads, me and some geek friends are tracking a half-mile-wide asteroid that will pass within roughly the moon's distance from earth. Today.)

  1. I heard it missed us, so most of us can continue in our obvlivious state. Thanks for posting -- I wasn't aware of the impending event.

    No, we only track big comets, PHAs and NASA junk and other over-priced projects that pose a threat to the population.

    If you're interested in Planet X (aka Xena, 2003UB313) Mike Brown has a good paper in .pdf format available
    here.

  5. I heard about this after the fact too. I was bummed. I would've loved to track it.
