Asteroid (NEO) 2019 XS Distance from Earth
The distance of Asteroid (NEO) 2019 XS from Earth is currently 112,649,780 kilometers, equivalent to 0.753017 Astronomical Units. Light takes 6 minutes and 15.7592 seconds to travel from Asteroid (NEO) 2019 XS and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid (NEO) 2019 XS 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) 2019 XS to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid (NEO) 2019 XS to Earth happens on Wed Nov 9 2022 at a distance of 0.00562744 Astronomical Units, or 841,853 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid (NEO) 2019 XS brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid (NEO) 2019 XS, 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) 2019 XS rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid (NEO) 2019 XS 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.
