MadMax, well here we have another chart with nary a very close approach coming.
This is up on Spaceweather now, 01:22 AM EST, Jan 04, 2020
You are really good at spotting the newly discovered ones just before they come whizzing by the Earth. :) Let us know, eh?

Barb NOTE what I had posted in Reply #753 above.
And the chart. 2020 AP1 was NOT listed there, but is now listed as having passed by earth at a distance of 0.9 LD. !!

Just checked the chart after a couple days and zoom there it is... 0.9 lunar distances,
fairly close pass.

Note: 0.9 LD means {0.9 of 27 million miles = approx 24,300,000 miles}
This is not a close shave but it is one of the closer recent passes. Anything between the Earth and the Moon the scientists pay attention to, especially if it is recently discovered...

A NEW KIND OF ASTEROID: Between Mars and Jupiter lies the Asteroid Belt where millions of space rocks orbit the sun. It's where asteroids are supposed to be. However, newfound asteroid 2020 AV2 is out of place: It circles the sun entirely inside the orbit of Venus. Russian amateur astronomer Filipp Romanov (Филипп Романов) photographed 2020 AV2 on Jan. 8th.

"Until 2020, no known asteroids had orbits contained within that of Venus," says Romanov. "On 4 January 2020, the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) discovered this one, and I was able to photograph it only 4 days later using a remotely-controlled iTelescope in New Mexico."

There's already a small class of asteroids called "Atiras" (named after the first one confirmed in 2003) that have orbits entirely inside Earth. Fewer than 2 dozen have been found. The discovery of 2020 AV2 takes things a step closer to the sun. Astronomers are tentatively calling its class "Vatiras"--a mashup of Venus and Atiras.

Wow.  Atiras and Vatiras--new names/words for our space vocabulary.   Been wondering what's the difference between asteroid and planetoid, so a search turned up: 
Planetoid is another term for asteroids, which are also called minor planets. Planetoids are small celestial bodies that orbit the Sun. Planets are simply defined as asteroids, but the term asteroid is not well defined either.Aug 10, 2009


Barb, thanks for keeping us informed!

Huge Meteor Fireball Disintegrates In The Sky Over Puerto Rico With Some Speculating It Announces The Next Big One!!

https://strangesounds.org/2020/01/puerto-rico-fireball-video-pictures-sign-doom.html

A large fireball disintegrated in the sky over Puerto Rico on January 17, 2020 afternoon.

The meteor was so bright that it was captured on a NOAA satellite and residents are wondering if it could a sign that the Big One is coming.  ???

While the disaster-striken Puerto Rico is currently experiencing an almost unprecedented earthquake swarm, a bright fireball exploded across the sky in Puerto Rico Friday afternoon, prompting local residents to speculate if it was a bad omen.

While I do not always agree with the current tone of how the Board is administered in Zetatalk, or some of the political commentary, for me, Zetatalk remains a point of reference.
I cannot hep but pay attention to the warnings. I do study the Safe Locs document etc.
Their words are part of my decision-making process...

Currently no actual Upcomiong Close Approaches, but as MadMax has pointed out, it's the new discoveries zooming by, that are often the most hazardous...
