    On Mar 31, a asteroid called 2006 VV2 will pass close to earth, so you will actually see it move,
    like a slow moving satellite in a telescope. It predicted to be around Mag 10.
    
    So something to look at, while sat observing that night.
    
    To get info use
    
    http://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi
    
    And type 2006 VV2, in the search box.
