See Asteroid Vesta with your naked eyes

Mark the date 17 Feb, 2010 as you might see Asteroid Vesta with binoculars or if you are lucky can even see it with your naked eyes as it will shine at a magnitude of 6.1 . Vesta is not the largest asteroid but it will be brightest as it will be opposite to Sun as seen from Earth. It will be at its closest point to Earth in its orbit about 211,980,000 kms away , the asteroid will be visited by the spacecraft Dawn. Vesta will be visible in the Eastern constellation.
Why Asteroid Vesta will be prominent ??

Vesta is in close proximity to Earth these days , full half of Vesta is being bathed by sunlight which makes it brighter and it has unique surface material that is not dark.

Don't miss the opportunity of seeing Vesta !!!!
