NEOs Newly Found DEC2012

UPDATE - More NEOs <10 LD (lunar distance) DEC2012 - 11/12DEC2012
Ready for more meteor/fireball activity as more NEOs will make a "close" approach to Earth along with accompanying debris. I expect a large bolide/fireball from tonight 11/12DEC; be prepared to WATCH and the rest of this month. This will NOT be doomsday; forget "2012" and the Mayan Calendar BS.

Asteroid 4179 Toutatis is now visible in the night sky by telescope as it passes safely by. The Geminid meteor shower is to peak 13/14DEC. Observers with cameras standby to report; thank you! -LunarMeteorite*Hunter, Tokyo
