Asteroid 2004 VN112 Distance
The distance of Asteroid 2004 VN112 from Earth is currently 7,313,988,803 kilometers, equivalent to 48.890995 Astronomical Units. Light takes 6 hours, 46 minutes and 36.8406 seconds to travel from Asteroid 2004 VN112 and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid 2004 VN112 from Earth as a function of time. In the chart the distance data is measured in Astronomical Units and sampled with an interval of 1 day.
The value of the reported distance might be somewhat inaccurate around the times of closest approach for objects passing extremely close to Earth. The value of the distance of 2004 VN112 from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
Closest approach of Asteroid 2004 VN112 to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid 2004 VN112 to Earth happens on Sun Nov 3 2013 at a distance of 46.48191975 Astronomical Units, or 6,953,596,235 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid 2004 VN112 brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 2004 VN112, according to the most recent ephemerides data. Magnitude data is sampled with a 2 days interval and there might be inaccuracies for objects changing brightness very rapidly during the course of a few days. For comets there could be large discrepancies between the observed and predicted brightness because of their highly dynamic behaviour.
Asteroid 2004 VN112 rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid 2004 VN112 touches the horizon, considering the effect of the atmospheric refraction. As the atmospheric conditions cannot be modeled precisely the times reported here should be considered correct with an approximation of few minutes.
