    Since the Asteroid 2012 DA14 on the 15th of February will pass through the 
    Geo ring (at only about  4 Earth radii of altitude), I've created a special 
    page 
    at satflare.com to track the asteroid orbit among the satellites:
    
    http://www.satflare.com/track.asp?q=A2012DA14
    
    I've also created some screenshots showing 3D views of the asteroid flyby 
    through the satellite cloud:

    The same 3D live views can be re-created here:
    
    http://www.satflare.com/track.asp?q=A2012DA14&act=u2
    
    The page can also predict, or show in real-time, the asteroid path
    in the sky-chart along with the expected visual magnitude.
    
    It is also possible to obtain the sky-map highlighting the best time 
    and position to observe the asteroid from your location:

    You may need to set manually your coordinates for accurate results, 
    either in the page or in the link as follow:

    Best Regards,
