Mauro sent two versions of the movie he made, and I thought both were equally interesting, so here they are. The first video shows the space rock moving through a stationary star field. The second film has the asteroid immobile while the stars move behind it.
The image at right is a compilation of all two hundred and sixty 30-second images. He imaged through a 3.2-inch Sky-Watcher Pro 80ED apochromatic refractor using a Meade Deep Sky Imager III Pro monochrome CCD camera.
What a great example of a project amateur astronomers can tackle with even a small telescope. Great job, Mauro!
You know what is strange is that it never runs out of Momentum you would think even in a vacumn that it would slow down and stop moving over time...but as fast as it looked as it is going that is not going to happen anytime soon...
