Asteroid 2012 TC4 close approach – new image and movie
While asteroid 2012 TC4 continues to approach our planet, at the Virtual Telescope we managed to grab a few more images.
The one above was obtained with the Planewave 17″ unit, with its Paramount ME mount tracking the object across the stars.
Below is a video obtained the previous night, showing TC2014 asteroid moving quite fast.
Don’t miss our live observing session of this asteroid next 11 Oct.!
