Asteroid (NEO) 2021 CD Distance from Earth
The distance of Asteroid (NEO) 2021 CD from Earth is currently 232,983,029 kilometers, equivalent to 1.557395 Astronomical Units. Light takes 12 minutes and 57.1477 seconds to travel from Asteroid (NEO) 2021 CD and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid (NEO) 2021 CD 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) 2021 CD to Earth
During the next 10 years, the closest approach of Asteroid (NEO) 2021 CD to Earth happens on Sat Jan 29 2028 at a distance of 0.010620 Astronomical Units, or 1,588,731 kilometers:
Asteroid (NEO) 2021 CD brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid (NEO) 2021 CD, 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) 2021 CD rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid (NEO) 2021 CD 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.
