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.

the closes approach was early today. Now the asteroid is moving away and will stay VERY faint, so basically not visible.
