Near Earth Asteroid 2012 LZ1 1:45 UT, 15 June 2012
2012 LZ1 was imaged at 1:45 UT after its closest approach of 13-14 lunar-distances (that's the distance between the Earth and the Moon, 0.036 AU) on June 14 23:10 UT. The asteroid had just zipped past Barnard's Galaxy and the Little Gem Nebula when this series of images were taken.
Here's my animation.
