Anyone planning on imaging the 'spooky' asteroid?

Recommended Posts

Asteroid 2015 TB145 is pretty big and gets reasonably close on 31st making it a candidate for backard telescopes. Any takers for a spooky challenge ? Looking at it another way, It's a mighty fine excuse to stay in the back garden while the trick or treaters bang at your door :laugh:.

Had go at it but no joy, too dim, by the time it's brighter it will be lurking in SE London LP.

By 5pm tomorrow (closest approach) it should lie in Ursa Major in the North West?

Cheers

Definitely gonna go for it if it's clear! (And that's a big 'if'...) Hoping to catch it as it passes Phad in Ursa Major around 6:10 PM.

Cool, lets hope for clear skies (it doesn't look good from this side of the Pennines). What's its magnitude?
