Abstract

On Earth most definitely and likely also around the Moon, in the few days centred on Friday, April 13th, 2029, 21:45 UT, every informed and curious naked eye, lens, mirror and dish within the horizon will be aimed at (99942) Apophis for an once-in-a-1000 years opportunity of scientific observations. Most will watch or listen. Many will transmit. Some will get in the way of others. And a few will blast it with all they can - for the best of science. We intend to start the discussion to include the public in the unique observation of Apophis, in particular focusing on the radio amateur community and the need for world-wide coordination to avoid mutual interference.
