    Saw this info this morning.
    
    "Asteroid 2004 FH's point of closest approach with the Earth will be 
    over the South Atlantic Ocean. Using a good pair of binoculars, the 
    object will be bright enough to be seen during this close approach from 
    areas of Europe, Asia and most of the Southern Hemisphere."
    
    For those in the right places, might be fun to try and view!
