^^ Craft Information - Initial Report ^^

This asteroid was found by the Kerman Observatory while under operation by the Asteroid Tracking Network and after discovery passed only 1.7Mm from Kerbin, where it was imaged by the Arakebo Radio Telescope. After it exited the sysem initial calculations brought it back around for a second pass at around 7Mm in 2096. However later observations showed that it could in fact impact Kerbin earlier in 2036.

Additional observations of its orbit have confirmed the revised orbital data: it will impact Kerbin in late 2036. Although this is one of the largest astroids to be classified (an E-type) its far-off impact date will make it easier to deflect. Technologies are already under development towards this purpose.
