RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FEAR MONGERING!!! RABBLE, RABBLE, RABBLE@!!!!!!!!!!

No just kidding :) I want to see this thing in a telescope and I was wondering if anyone knows what time it will be visible in the eastern standard timezone. I can't seem to find the info anywhere. Does anyone know what part of the sky it is in and at about what time?

All it takes is even more than 1 metre telescope to see this asteroid now. It have apparent magnitude of 21.
