Am 25. Oktober erreichte der rund 700 Meter große Asteroid mit 6,2 Millionen km
seine größte Erdnähe. Mit einer Geschwindigkeit von 40400 km/h raste er durch
das Sternbild Dreieck. Seine scheinbare Helligkeit betrug 13 mag.
Entdeckt wurde der Asteroid vom LINEAR-Projekt im April 1998 in New Mexico.
Seine Umlaufzeit beträgt 508 Tage. Er wird als „potenziell gefährlich“ eingestuft.
Seine nächste Erdannäherung mit rund 6 Millionen km erreicht er im Jahre 2140.
Nach bisheriger Berechnung soll in den nächsten 178 Jahre keine Gefahr von Ihm ausgehen.
Der Bildausschnitt beträgt 17 x 17 Bogenminuten, das Objekt bewegte sich somit
mit knapp 40 Bogenminuten in der Stunde über den Himmel.

On October 25, the approximately 700-meter asteroid reached 6.2 million km
its largest earth proximity. With a speed of 40400 km / h he raced through
the constellation triangle. His apparent brightness was 13 mag.
The asteroid was discovered by the LINEAR project in April 1998 in New Mexico.
Its orbital period is 508 days. He is classified as "potentially dangerous".
He reaches his next earth approach of around 6 million km in 2140.
According to the previous calculation, there should be no danger from him in the next 178 years.
The image section is 17 x 17 arc minutes, the object thus moved
with just under 40 minutes of arc per hour across the sky.
