Asteroid 14 Irene Distance
The distance of Asteroid 14 Irene from Earth is currently 321,639,129 kilometers, equivalent to 2.150025 Astronomical Units. Light takes 17 minutes and 52.8727 seconds to travel from Asteroid 14 Irene and arrive to us.
The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid 14 Irene 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 14 Irene from Earth is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.
Closest approach of Asteroid 14 Irene to Earth
Between January 2013 and December 2100 the closest approach of Asteroid 14 Irene to Earth happens on Fri Apr 2 2088 at a distance of 1.17527607 Astronomical Units, or 175,818,797 kilometers:
NOTE: values for the closest approach are computed with a sampling interval of 1 day.
Asteroid 14 Irene brightness
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 14 Irene, 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 14 Irene rise and set times
The rise and set times are defined as the time at which the upper limb of Asteroid 14 Irene 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.
