Prediction and observation
Prediction from Steve
Report sent to
E. Frappa who forwarded it to Planoccult (may not be on-line).
Based on the orbital period of 4.5 yr, the fact that the orbit is nearly
circular, the geocentric distance of 1.972 AU, the velocity of the asteroid's
shadow at Earth location is 13.1 km/s. The speed of asteroid's shadow
on Earth surface (taking into account its motion) is given on S. Preston's
website as 10.0055 km/s. The dimension of the shadow that flied over my
location was then 90 km.
