What's Up for February 2013

On February 15 a small asteroid named 2012 DA-14 will whiz by, only 17,200 miles from Earth. It doesn't pose any threat to us, but it is sure to create a buzz around the world.

North Americans won't be able to easily view the passerby asteroid due to its' magnitude, but Mercury and Mars are close to each other on the night of the 15-16th (My birthday night)...and the Comet Pan-Starrs seems to point towards a setting Mars in March.
