Oct. 7, 2008
Observatoire du Cegep de Trois-Rivieres, Champlain, Qu├ębec, Canada
The two images are combinations of unfiltered images of 10 seconds exposure each, separated by 10 seconds. The first image was taken at 01h32 UT October 7th and the second one was taken at 01h42 UT. Both were made with a 0,4m F4,4 Newtonian and a ST-9E. This asteroid was zooming!! One can see the enormous change of speed and direction in JUST 10 MINUTES!!! Amazing!! Unfortunately, I lost it behind trees ;-( But it was amazing still! I'm anxious to see images of the fireball!
