Description

Started gathering data on M96. Noticed a few moving objects, so I put together a quick animation from some of the Luminance frames. Move the cursor off the frame to see the motion. Each second represents 10 minutes of motion in the animation.

Original Image shows Asteroids with arrows

Image B shows Asteroid Trails

Image C is the Animation loop

The 4 asteroids in motion past M96 from top to bottom:

6526 Matogawa mag 16.9

41832 2000 WB58 mag 18.3

61837 2000 QC197 mag 18.5

3726 Johnadams mag 16.4 (lower right)
