    Closest approach "about 6,000 km away at 11:20 Universal Time (3:20 a.m.
    Pacific Standard Time) on January 15th".
    
    It "may brighten to 10th magnitude just before and during its flyby.
    Dunham says the favored locations from which to attempt a search are
    eastern Asia, Australia, and the western Pacific. North Americans have
    their best chance near local midnight on January 14-15. (Those desiring
    a positional ephemeris should go to JPL's Horizons System, then modify
    the default settings as instructed there.)"
