----------------
  The approaches by NEOs thus far detected for DEC 2012 only includes ONE with an LD (Lunar Distance) of less than LD10!

 Asteroid 4179 Toutatis with a diameter of 5.4 kilometers (3.36 miles diameter - big enough!!!) will pass safely at 18LD but there may be debris from it that will increase meteor activity a few days  just prior and following its passing on 12DEC2012; CAMERAS and OBSERVERS READY! - File a sighting report on this site IF you witness a bolide, fireball or meteor; thank you!

 This list WILL certainly be updated or proven incomplete this month, December 2012. Meteor/Fireball activity for December 2012 will continue to be at an increased level. Check back as more NEOs will be found and announced.

2012 THE Year of Meteors!

12 December 2012

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

Wikipedia Entry for 4179 Toutatis-
Close approaches and collision risk
Toutatis makes frequent close approaches to Earth, with a currently minimum possible distance (Earth MOID) of just 0.006 AU (2.3 times as far as the Moon).[1] The approach on September 29, 2004, was particularly close, at 0.0104 AU[13] (within 4 lunar distances) from Earth, presenting a good opportunity for observation, with Toutatis shining at magnitude 8.8 when brightest.[2] A more recent close approach of 0.0502 AU (7,510,000km; 4,670,000 mi) happened on November 9, 2008.[13][5] The next close approach will be December 12, 2012, at a distance of 0.046 AU (6,900,000 km; 4,300,000 mi),[13][5] and at magnitude 10.7.[14] At magnitude 10.7, the asteroid will not be visible to the naked eye, but may be visible to experienced observers using high-end binoculars. Toutatis was recovered on May 21, 2012, by the Siding Spring Survey at apparent magnitude 18.9.[15]

Given that Toutatis makes many close approaches the Earth, such as in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012, it is listed as a potentially hazardous object.[5] With an uncertainty parameter of 0,[1] the orbit of Toutatis is very well determined for the next few hundred years.[5] The probability of the orbit intersecting Earth is essentially zero for at least the next six centuries.[16] The likelihood of collision in the distant future is considered to be very small.[6] As a planet-crossing asteroid, Toutatis is likely to be ejected from the Solar System on a time scale of a few tens of thousands of years, giving it a limited number of opportunities to strike Earth before disappearing forever. As with many near-Earth objects, Toutatis was in 2004 the object for fear mongering by some doomsayers.[17]
