Celestia File for 2010 TD54

2010 TD54 as visualized in Celestia, near the Moon and Earth

While 2010 TD54 is too small for all but the most instrument intensive amateurs, you can still enjoy its zoom by Earth using the 3D simulation program Celestia. The image to the left shows the asteroid at its closest approach to the Moon, with the earth in the background. Copy the text below the image and save it as the file 2010TD54.ssc

There is not much point putting it into Stellarium as it is too dim to see, but I've included Stellarium coordinates at the end anyway.
