(80593) 2000 AG144 (2000 AG144,1974 PD) The Mars crosser asteroid was photographed on the second night of the Stormbonger incident and extra work. The asteroid was discovered by the LINEAR Socorro exploration program on January 5, 2000. The estimated size of the asteroid is 4.9km. This asteroid, too, has been little studied, and rapid approach and distancing are likely to make research difficult. We photographed this asteroid earlier during the September work, with the moon disturbing. 1Picture first picture measured, 2019-09-28T 21: 26: 31UT 2458755.39341JDUT 21h35m43.34s + 21d50'06.1 "15.5mag Std Dev 539.304, JPL Horizon 21: 26: 31UT 21h35m43.32s + 21d50'05.1" 15.25mag.
