There are currently 0 2 3 4 known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less, LD stands for "Lunar Distance", in the month of August; expect that 5-10 or more NEOs will be discovered before month end. Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!  We have FIVE small "mountain-sized" asteroids that will safely pass, but close enough for comfort!!!  MANY asteroids are going to go undiscovered this month due to Moon Blindness!!!
