ASTEROID 2010WC9 CLOSE FLY-BY

Al Sadeem Astronomy’s resident astronomer Aldrin Gabuya captured the path of the asteroid in spite of poor sky condition early in the morning of May 16, 2018, at 00:20 local time when it was about 17 above the horizon in the constellation of Scorpio. Below is the time-lapse animation of the asteroid fly-by in 10 sec exposure per frame using the observatory’s Celestron 11-inch SCT mounted on Skywatcher EQ6 pro mount and ZWO1600MC cooled camera. read more
