Possible Auroral Activity and Asteroid Fly By

2014_RC_flybyCrop_EDT

According to spaceweather.com, there is the possibility of auroral activity this evening due to a CME delivering a glancing blow to Earth today.
Also, according to the same website, a newly discovered asteroid, 2014RC (a house-sized asteroid only discovered on August 31) will pass Earth within the orbit of geosynchronous satellites on the morning of Sunday (Sept. 7) as it passes through the constellation Pisces, which will be 40 degrees above the southwestern horizon at 5 AM.
The weather should be great for seeing,
