Asteroids and Meteors Incoming July 2015
ALERT- Increased Meteor Activity! Expect some spectacular bolides,  fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of  4 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids that will safely pass this month. Dates to watch especially are July 13- 27 as the four small mountains pass through the neighborhood. An especially interesting period will be the July 21-27 when a 1.0-2.3 km diameter asteroid with an LD of 18.8 will pass safely on 25 July but may have unknown accompanying debris that may provide meteor activity seen.

Please report your meteor sightings to this website for posting-
http://lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.jp/2000/11/meteor-fireball-report-form.html

There are currently 3   known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less (LD stands for "Lunar Distance"), in the month of July 2015; expect that 10 or more 10LD NEOs will be discovered before month end. Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!
