2021 OV
I just ran this small rock and although the orbit is still highly uncertain, it was interesting to look at its orbit. It appears to have came in from outside and swung well below our southern hemisphere, hence only 12 observations on the 19th. As it's magnitude caved quickly late on the 20th (21st UT) as it swept sunward and became far, far to faint to keep track of. At closest approach b4 that, it may have been 14th mag or so and moving 1/4°/min. It's minimum distance for me was ~200,000Km. Cool stuff, indeed.

That must be a new one discovered since Jul 22 when I did the NEO download. Really need to keep a close watch on these things.
