Asteroid 2011 CA7 Earth Flyby 9th/10th February 2011

Newly-discovered asteroid 2011 CA7 is flying past Earth today only 63,000 miles away, or 1/4th the distance to the Moon. At closest approach around 1930 UT on Feb. 9th, the VW-Bug-sized space rock will zip through the constellation Orion glowing like a 17th magnitude star.

Here is the Simulation of the Asteroid as it passes by Earth.
