    On Oct 23 at around 18:02 utc, APT ( 37800 ) will pass by.
    It's predicted to get to 2nd magnitude at the time, and under 400 km away, so it will zip across the sky at a good speed.
    The sky will be bright, as the sun will be roughly 10 degress below the horizon.
    Enjoy the close encounter of the APT kind.
