Animations of the 2010 TD54 flyby

Well, we southerners may have been rained out, but in the USA Patrick Wiggins imaged 2010 TD54 with a Celestron C-14 telescope and turned the images into an animation. You can see the results here.

And it looks like I was not the only one having troubles getting the MPC ephemeris server to respond, I though it was just me. Luckily I had downloaded a version earlier (not that it mattered with the rain).

UPDATE: Ernesto Guido & Giovanni Sostero of the Remanzacco observatory in Italy
picked up the asteroid using the GRAS 05 observatory. Follow the link to the animation!
