Detection of an Apollo NEO (Aug. 2013)

First successfull observation of Near-Earth Objects (NEO) with Florent Losse at his observatory (IAU code: I93) :
See Minor Planety Center Circular MPEC 2013-Q50 for the observation of Apollo asteroid 2013 QF11.

During this run, we also observed the supernova SN2013ev, newly detected in galaxy IC1296, which is close to M57 the Lyra nebula (black patch in the center of the field).


And here is a nice NEO observation, done in May 2013.

A strange NEO (May 2013)

A few months before my first observation run at I93, NEO surveys detected a nice object: the Herschel Space Observatory !
It can be seen in the middle center of this animation, as a small moving dot. The other bright patches are stars, and the bright lines are satellites flying throught the field-of-view.
