Astro ImagingAs you know this asteroid will make a 4-lunar distance pass on the 29(?) of Sept. I put together a small 2 frame animation of the asteroid taken from Van Buren the first week of Sept. The magnitude at that time was listed at about 12. Thanks, Mike Holloway

Thanks for posting that little two-image animation, Mike. It's very interesting and I'm hoping to watch it in several days from now when it's easier to spot and hopefully is moving fast enough to actually "see" it moving against the background stars.

Thanks again, Mike.
