While approaching our planet, the near-Earth asteroid 2014 KH39 was imaged again via the Virtual Telescope.
Above is a single 300-seconds exposure, taken with the main PlaneWave 17 robotic unit: the Paramount ME tracked the apparent motion (16″/minute) of the object, resulting in a sharp asteroid (marked by the arrow in the center) and trailed stars. At the imaging time, the ~25 meters large asteroid 2014 KH39 was at about 2 millions of km from us. A satellite trail is also visible.
