How bright is Asteroid 87 Sylvia?

The current visual magnitude of Asteroid 87 Sylvia is 13.04. Given its brightness, Asteroid 87 Sylvia should be visible with the help of a telescope havng an aperture of 6 inches (150mm) or more.


The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 87 Sylvia, 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.
