Alert -Breaking News- Newly Detected NEO to Make Close Pass Towards Earth 17/18MAY2012 and for the Remainder of May 2012


Near Earth Objects (NEOs) (2012 KA), (2012 JV11), were just detected prior to their close Earth passes. Other close approach NEOs (2012 KW). (2010 KK37), and (2001 CQ36) are also likely to stir some meteor activity. Get outside and see if you can spot some meteor, fireball or bolide activity as other debris will certainly be accompanying them. If you have a security camera or allsky camera have it on!
 If you have a sighting please make a report:
