Dear astrofriends,
I'm planning to watch the 1988 eg asteroid.
But I have no ephemerides, and no magnitude datas.
Where to find it ?
thanks in advance

P.S.: The Earth-crossing asteroid 1988EG
(which has just been numbered 6037 but is not yet named)
was discovered in 1988 at Palomar by JPL's International
Near-Earth Asteroid Survey team.
The close approach to within about 12 lunar
distances from Earth in late February 1998 offers an
excellent opportunity to learn about this object.
There is no 1988EG radar opportunity at least this good until
2023.
