Recent Close Moon Approaches

Refreshed at 1839 UT on 23 February 2017

This is a list of 211 objects that are known to have passed closer to the Moon than the distance between Earth and Moon (that is, less than one "lunar distance" or "LD") during the 3,707 days since 1 Jan. 2007, when this timeline begins. We don't have uncertainty info for these passages, but the order of the problem is indicated for objects having uncertainty stated here from JPL's Earth-passage calculations.

In the time that we have been doing the A/CC Earth's Busy Neighborhood "traffic report," only a couple of objects have been observed to have apparently passed within the Moon's own gravitional sphere of influence (SOI), which is estimated to extend out to about 0.18 LD maximum from the Moon's center, a radius that changes with the Moon's distance from Earth.

All data on this page comes from the NASA JPL Solar System Dynamics (SSD) Group through its Horizons system. JPL is not affiliated with this page or A/CC, and responsibility for the interpretation of the data and its use here rests entirely with A/CC.
