From CN Forum:



There's an article on the 2004 BL86 flyby on pages 50 and 51 of the February issue of Sky & Telescope.  According to the article, observers in North and South America, Europe, and Africa will have the best views of the NEO, from 1:00 to 6:00 UT (8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. EST) on January 27th.  During that time, it will be heading northeastward through Cancer and will pass through the eastern boundary of M44 at 5:00 UT.  2004 BL86 will be traveling at approximately two arc seconds per second so its motion should be apparent in real time.
