Hi,

I observed the Near-Earth Asteroid 2014 JO25 last night in Cepheus. 2017 April 19 at 04.05 UT and at 04.29 UT. At 13th magnitude, not particularly easy. Could see its movement after a few moments. 28 cm SCT at 80x. Clear sky, transparency (only) ok. Dewy.

It passed closest to Earth at 12 hrs UT today (19th April 2017) at a distance of 1.8 million km.

Hi Aubrey,

In Massachusetts. Weather forecast here is poor for tonight, when the asteroid is predicted to be 11th magnitude.
