Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ Distance from Earth
The distance of Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ from Earth is currently 234,919,115 kilometers, equivalent to 1.570337 Astronomical Units. Light takes 13 minutes and 3.6058 seconds to travel from Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ 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.
Closest approach of Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ to Earth happens on Sat May 24 2014 at a distance of 0.00881504 Astronomical Units, or 1,318,712 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ, 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) 2014 LJ rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid (NEO) 2014 LJ 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.
