Asteroid 433 Eros Distance
The distance of Asteroid 433 Eros from Earth is currently 198,083,485 kilometers, equivalent to 1.324106 Astronomical Units. Light takes 11 minutes and 0.7354 seconds to travel from Asteroid 433 Eros and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid 433 Eros 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 433 Eros from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
Closest approach of Asteroid 433 Eros to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid 433 Eros to Earth happens on Mon Jan 24 2056 at a distance of 0.14979957 Astronomical Units, or 22,409,696 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid 433 Eros brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 433 Eros, 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 433 Eros rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid 433 Eros 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.
