Latest Radar Images of Asteroid 2005 YU55 from Goldstone
With the updated orbital elements from these observation, the asteroid is still on track to zip harmlessly past Earth and the Moon.
You can read the full press release here.
I believe that image was taken at a range of 800,000 + Miles. Much higher resolution images were taken; they just haven't been released yet.
Yes, I know. the one I showed was the latest released at the time of writing. Everyone is waiting with bayed breath for the full Goldstone and Aricebo series, as well as cleaned up versions of the Keck IR images.
I keep checking the web, if you see them before me let me know.
