Visibility IV / V

I photographed Leon's constellation Messier 65 galaxy last week and the picture happened to an asteroid (6360) 1978 UA7! The animation made from 23 images starts on March 9, 2021 at 11:01 PM and ends on March 10, 2021 at 4:24 AM. That asteroid is located in the asteroid zone between Mars and Jupiter. Its orbit around the Sun is 1354 days, or about 3 years and 8 months. The asteroid was discovered on October 27, 1978.

Hyvä havainto, kuvat kannattaa tarkastaa aina ja noukkia asteroidit. Käy kätevästi Minor planet centerin MPChecker ohjelmalla. Tämähän oli näyttävä :) .

Kiitos! Käytin tunnistamiseen Astrometrica ohjelmaa. Jostain syystä en saanut MPCheckeriä toimimaan.
