Near-Earth asteroid 2014 CR: a new image (16 Feb. 2014)
See this asteroid live with us!
Also the near-Earth asteroid 2014 CR is approaching, waiting for us sharing it live in the next few days.
The Planewave 17 robotic unit managed to capture it, no matter the bright full Moon: the telescope tracked the asteroid, so it looks like a small dot of light, while stars shifted on the background.
Above is the average of four images, with 2014 CR marked by two white lines.
