Here is a table from Heavens Above for the asteroid fly by from Mansfield.


I'm sure it won't be far off for anyone else in EMS. If you login to Heavens Above you can get the exact info for your location.


You may notice that it is brightest as it rises above the horizon very low down in the north and dimishes as it gets higher.


 


This map is pretty much the same as Damians above...

Just hope this chart doesn't change format and look a mess as soon as I post this.
