I'll be taking a shot at this with the Canon 5D + 800mm Rokinon mirror lens if it comes by at night.

Results posted here, unless the thing lands on me.

Time to put on your party pants.

I'm going riding this week, it's supposed to reach 50 degrees or so.

Ha! I have no heated anything. I do have to wear a hoodie under my Tourmaster jacket when it's 40.
30's and I am in my insulated leather pants, or my one piece Walls suit.

At 60 (this Saturday) I will have my "standard" gear on.

There is supposed to be a close one in 2029, I read that you will be able to see it during day time with the naked eye. Can't wait.

I can hear the weather report "the highs today are expected to be in the mid 1,250's for those in the asteroid viewing area"

I'll prob be long gone by then
