The value of the reported distance might be somewhat inaccurate around the times of closest approach for objects passing extremely close to Earth.
Closest approach of Asteroid (NEO) 2005 LW3 to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid (NEO) 2005 LW3 to Earth happens on Thu Nov 23 2084 at a distance of 0.00300851 Astronomical Units, or 450,066 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid (NEO) 2005 LW3 brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid (NEO) 2005 LW3, 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 (NEO) 2005 LW3 rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid (NEO) 2005 LW3 touches the horizon, consideting the effect of the atmospheric refraction. As the atmoshpere conditions cannot be modeled precisely the times reported here should be considered correct with an approximation of few minutes.
