Location: Greenwich, United Kingdom [change]
Latitude: 51° 28’ 47” N
Longitude: 0° 00’ 00” E
Timezone: Europe/London

Today's Asteroid (NEO) 292220 rise, transit and set times from Greenwich, United Kingdom [change] are the following (all times relative to the local timezone Europe/London):

Azimuth: 100.4°
Max altitude: 28.2°
Azimuth: 259.7°
Asteroid (NEO) 292220 is above the horizon from Greenwich, United Kingdom

The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid (NEO) 292220 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.
