    Oops, replied to kevein, but not the list.
    
    Anyway, I did some analysis on this event, and it's nothing to look at. 
    Based on publically available data, there's not much to distinguish it from
    any of another hundred conjunctions that day.
    
    The scary bit is, you can't get better data to protect your own spacecraft,
    and the guys that have the better data aren't looking out for it for you.
