Close approach of 2016 LT1 Apollo NEO 7 metre wide asteroid at 0.4 LD !!!! 2016-Jun-07 20:26 UTC Earth 

Discovered on the 4th of June 2016, 7 metre wide Apollo asteroid 2016LT1 will make a very close approach of our planet and moon tomorrow. Minimum CA distance for earth is a mere 0.4 LD. The low earth relative velocity of 7.4 Km/s coupled with it's relatively small size and close approach minimum distance could hold promise for a dazzling display for lucky fireball chasers if local weather permits.
2016-Jun-07 20:26 UTC Earth 0.00095 AU = 0.4 LD, Vr = 7.48 Km/s
2016-Jun-08 01:25 UTC Moon 0.00325 AU Vr = 8.29 Km/s
