(38181) 1999 JG124 (1999 JG124,1992 KN) The Mars-crossing asteroid was photographed on the second night of the March work. The phocae family asteroid was discovered by the LINEAR Socorro exploration program on May 15, 1999. The total estimate is 3.6km. No information on spectrum and rotation. The orbit of the asteroid comes scarcely inside the orbit of the planet Mars. When photographing the asteroid at a distance of 0.768au, the closest it was 0.756au on March 27, 2020. When photographing the target, the asteroid went over a bright star in the last images. 1Picture. first image measured, 2020-03-14 21: 26: 22UT 2458923.39331JDUT 13h35m44.3s + 24d14'43.4 "16.3mag Std Dev 383.031, JPL Horizon 21: 26: 22UT 13h35m43.91s + 24d14'40.8" 16.16mag.
