Near-Earth asteroid (277475) 2005 WK4 is getting closer (3 Aug. 2013)
Near-Earth asteroid (277475) 2005 WK4 is coming closer and closer, ready to put a nice show in the sky on Aug. 9. Meanwhile, the PlaneWave 17″ robotic unit visited it again, to make some astrometric measures. The asteroid was a bit brighter and faster than the previous night.
Again, the Paramount ME, made possible to track it, with some spectacular results.
