A GIF animation of 322 x3 second frames showing NEO 3200 Pheathon during its close approach in December last year. It's taken me a while to get around to putting this together... Frames were taken during the early evening of December 14th 2017 between 18.11.06 UT and 19.44.57 UT as the object crossed the Perseus/ Andromeda border. The field is just under a degree wide. What I think is a sporadic meteor crosses the field about a second in. I could not find a satellite ID for that time and region, nor do I think it is a Geminind as it seem to come from the wrong radiant. Any comments or observations welcome.
