Near-Earth Asteroid 2014 DU22: 7 Mar. 2014

On 14 Mar. 2014, the near-Earth asteroid 2014 DU22 will be a bit closer than 3 millions of km from the Earth. It will be a nice chance to detect this 60-meters large body in the sky. Of course, there are absolutely no risks at all for us.

Above is the average of 11, 60-seconds exposures, remotely taken with the Planewave 17 robotic unit; the telescope tracked the target at its apparent motion, so stars are showing as trails, while 2014 DU22 is a faint dot in the center of the image.
