Ships of the Void

Amor asteroid 1992 KD was discovered on May 27, 1992 by E. Helin and K.
Lawrence with the 0.46m (18-inch) Schmidt telescope at Palomar during the
Palomar Planet-Crossing Asteroid Survery. 1992 KD was first seen while it was
traveling North-Northeast in Libra some 38 million kms away at a magnitude of
15.5. Deep Space 1 will pass within 10 kms of the asteroid which is believed
to be up to 5 kms long.
