Asteroid 2016 HO3 Distance from Earth
The distance of Asteroid 2016 HO3 from Earth is currently 23,462,869 kilometers, equivalent to 0.156840 Astronomical Units. Light takes 1 minutes and 18.2637 seconds to travel from Asteroid 2016 HO3 and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid 2016 HO3 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 2016 HO3 from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
Closest approach of Asteroid 2016 HO3 to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100, the closest approach of Asteroid 2016 HO3 to Earth happens on Sat Nov 9 2030 at a distance of 0.107288 Astronomical Units, or 16,050,041 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid 2016 HO3 brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 2016 HO3, 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 2016 HO3 rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid 2016 HO3 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.
