    Near-Earth-Asteroid (NEO) 2015 TB145 is about 0.5 km in diameter and expected to pass 1.27 lunar distances from Earth on 2015 OCT 31 at 15:14 UT (10:14 CDT).

    I’ve created a view from north of the solar system, an equatorial chart and a geocentric ephemeris. They can be viewed at www.CurtRenz.com/asteroids.html

    Photos and descriptions of the asteroid would be welcome additions to this thread.
