On 15 Mar. 2014 at 04:59 UT, the near-Earth asteroid 2014 EB25 will be at 1.6 millions of km from the Earth. It will be a nice chance to detect this 40-meters large body in the sky. Of course, there are absolutely no risks at all for us.

Above is the average of 2, 180-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 EM is a sharp, dot in the center of the image.
