These Lunar Distances can be found at spaceweather.com Open spaceweather.com and scroll down to the ‘near misses’. (Space map of orbiting objects) There are many known objects nearing Earth. However, **quite often a surprise shows up and is within the Lunar Distance. Several have occurred already this year. Watch for the ones forecast BUT be ready for the unexpected.
