The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, currently orbiting near-Earth asteroid (101955) Bennu, has detected dust emission from the asteroid (Lauretta et al. 2019). Dust emissions from near-Earth asteroids and comets are responsible for most meteor activities at the Earth. Bennu has a Minimum Orbital Intersection Distance of only 0.003 au, comparable to many meteor shower parents. Here we present a preliminary calculation of the encounters between the recent ejecta from Bennu and the Earth.
