Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid (NEO) 2016 HP6 to Earth happens on Sun May 13 2018 at a distance of 0.00555939 Astronomical Units, or 831,672 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid (NEO) 2016 HP6 brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid (NEO) 2016 HP6, 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) 2016 HP6 rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid (NEO) 2016 HP6 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.
