    Very true about the interest of laymen :( the moment I saw the asteroid news I came immediately to see what the MPC blog team had to say about it.

    This is the most beautiful and informative visualization of asteroids that might come close to Earth I have ever seen !

    Very interesting.

    I wonder if a using a log scale for distances would make the plot easier to read. The central part is a bit crouded.
    This would expand the geosynchronous circle far out, providing extra space to view very close flybys.
