The 2019 Taurid resonant swarm: prospects for ground detection of small NEOs


This paper has been submitted for publication in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society by  David Clark, Paul Wiegert and Peter G. Brown.

Abstract:  In June 2019 the Earth will approach within 5° mean anomaly of the centre of the Taurid resonant swarm, its closest post-perihelion encounter with Earth since 1975. This will be the best viewing geometry to detect and place limits on the number of NEOs proposed to reside at the swarm centre until the early 2030s. We present an analysis of the optimal times and pointing locations to image NEOs associated with the swarm.
