Asteroid 1998 QE2, 31 May 2013

Asteroid 1998 QE2, 31 May, 24x10 second exposures stacked in ImageJ and MAX Z-project applied. R filter, iTelescope T9 (click to embigggen).Animated GIF from the 24 frames, it's really zipping along now.

Near Earth Asteroid 285263 1998 QE2 is fairly hooting along now. Compare todays animation with the one from the 28th and the from the 24th. Closest approach is a mere 4 and a half hours away, but then the asteroid will be too close to the horizon to image (and now cloud is ruining my 1 July run). I'll have another go tomorrow.
