Asteroid 2016 WF9 Distance
The distance of Asteroid 2016 WF9 from Earth is currently 566,272,256 kilometers, equivalent to 3.785296 Astronomical Units. Light takes 31 minutes and 28.8809 seconds to travel from Asteroid 2016 WF9 and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid 2016 WF9 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 WF9 from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
Closest approach of Asteroid 2016 WF9 to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid 2016 WF9 to Earth happens on Sat Dec 30 2045 at a distance of 0.14126654 Astronomical Units, or 21,133,174 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid 2016 WF9 brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 2016 WF9, 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 WF9 rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid 2016 WF9 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.
