NEOs Close Pass July 2012

NEOs (Near-Earth Objects) / Asteroids Close Approaches July 2012

As of today, 2JUL2012, there are no NEOs listed that will come close enough to Earth to encourage our meteor/fireball viewing pleasure. BUT, this data will certainly have additions once the full moon is passed and more objects are discovered.  Be sure to check back for updates. -LunarMeteorite*Hunter, Tokyo, Japan
