    Hi All,
    Using SkyMap, I've discovered a second upcoming asteroid
    transit of the sun:
    2001 KF54 on 9/13/2001 -- midtransit around 11:30 UT at a
    range of ~24 million km.  I suspect 2001 KF54 is far too
    small to be visible with even the largest solar telescope.
    If it was 1 km in diameter (and I doubt it's that large),
    it would only subtend .0086 arcseconds.
