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.

The Virtual Telescope will show this asteroid live, online, next 9 Aug. 2013: join this session for free!
