Any chance they could send Dawn over to 288P?, Asteroid 288P in main belt is comet-like

Looks like an interesting object. My search skills are rusty and I wasn't able to find a plot of where 2006 VW139/288P is in relationship to Dawn at this time. I did try to change the topic header since 288P is its cometary designation whereas 2006 VW139/288P contains both its asteroid and comet designations.

Space.com article about 2006 VW139/288P
