Asteroid 2016 HO3

Dado que su órbita es en torno al Sol y no a la Tierra, se trata de un Asteroide y no de otra luna de nuestro planeta.

Asteroid 2016 HO3 Orbit Diagram

This 3d orbit diagram is a feature of our 3D Solar System Simulator and shows the orbit of Asteroid 2016 HO3 with respect of the Sun and the orbits of the major planets. The position of Asteroid 2016 HO3 and the planets along their orbits in this diagram accurately represents the current configuration of the objects in the Solar System. This is an experimental feature and it requires a WebGL enabled browser. Please provide us feedback!

Asteroid 2016 HO3 Ephemeris

The following table lists the ephemerides of Asteroid 2016 HO3 computed for the past and next 7 days, with a 24 hours interval. Click on each row of the table to locate Asteroid 2016 HO3 in our Online Planetarium at the chosen date.

Distance of Asteroid 2016 HO3 from Earth

The following chart shows the distance of Asteroid 2016 HO3 from Earth as a function of time. Distance data is measured in Astronomical Units and sampled with a 2 days interval. The reported distances might be inaccurate around the times of closest approach for objects passing extremely close to Earth. The value of the distance of 2016 HO3 is also available as a real time updated value in the Live Position and Data Tracker.

Light Curve of Asteroid 2016 HO3

The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 2016 HO3, according to the most recent ephemerides data. Magnitude data is sampled with a 2 days interval and there might be inaccuracies for objects changing brightness very rapidly during the course of a few days. For comets there could be large discrepancies between the observed and predicted brightness because of their highly dynamic behaviour.
