Alert Large Fireball Meteor Events Pending 21-25 MAY 2013
Passing NEOs 2013 KT1, 2013 KS1, 2013 KB, will pass 21-22 MAY with an Lunar Distance of less than 5LD.
I expect that there are others leading or trailing them that have not been detected,
and some will produce meteors or large fireballs.
Be ready for observations and camera capture. We may soon have some new meteorites!
If you witnessed a meteor event please file a meteor sighting report on this site; thank you

NEO Asteroids Close Approaches MAY 2013 -published 01MAY2013
At the time of this posting there were no NEOs with an LD of 10 or less. I expect that we will see several fireballs 2-3 days prior and following 10MAY2013 as 360191 (1988 TA) passes. On May 23 163364 (2002 OD20) with a diameter of 470 m - 1.0 km will pass so I expect some activity 2-3 days prior and after. Also as 285263 (1998 QE2) with a diameter of 1.3km passes on 31MAY2013 expect some increased worldwide meteor activity 2-3 days either side of May 31. If there are any later new discoveries of NEOs this page will be updated ASAP. -LunarMeteoriteHunter, Tokyo
