NEO Asteroids Close Approaches December 2015

NEO Asteroids Close Approaches December 2015
 December we will likely have a large meteorite fall/s so MeteorRats be on standby! I expect a major fall sometime near December 22-29. Historical meteor fall calendar for December -

Please report your meteor sightings to this website for posting- Remember IF you are looking for a report and no one reports then everyone lacks information; thank you.
http://lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.jp/2000/11/meteor-fireball-report-form.html

There are currently 3,5,6,8,9   
37 known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less (LD stands for "Lunar Distance"), in the month of December 2015. I expect that 10 or more 10LD NEOs will be discovered before month end.

Expect some spectacular bolides,  fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of  9 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids and 1 comet, diameters ranging from 500m- 2.5.km,  that will safely pass this month.

Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!
Cameras Ready!
