Asteroid 13 Egeria Distance
The distance of Asteroid 13 Egeria from Earth is currently 302,019,956 kilometers, equivalent to 2.018879 Astronomical Units. Light takes 16 minutes and 47.4301 seconds to travel from Asteroid 13 Egeria and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid 13 Egeria 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 13 Egeria from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
Closest approach of Asteroid 13 Egeria to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid 13 Egeria to Earth happens on Tue Dec 28 2049 at a distance of 1.43000705 Astronomical Units, or 213,926,010 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid 13 Egeria brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 13 Egeria, 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 13 Egeria rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid 13 Egeria 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.
