Alert NEO 2019 OK @ 9.4mag zooming through the Skies

Quick alert and hot off the press.

A Nearth Earth Object dubbed 2019 OK is zooming through our skies at an absolute rate of knots. Only discovered yesterday it is likely to be an extremely close object to Earth and is around mag 9.4 at the moment.
I input the object into The SkyX after Greg Bock alerted me and it is amazing to watch it traverse the sky at speed.
Will see if I can upload the vid of The Sky X.
Will be amazing if someone captures this object and posts it.
