Description

When I was shooting the Monkey in OIII my friend Daniel told me that minor planet Europa was very close. As I checked the subs I found both 52 Europa and another object that Daniel helped me identfy as 150 Nuwa, and made a GIF animation of the movement.
The animation consists of 101 subs, 120 seconds each. The first sub is from 18:51 CET and the last one 23:38. The asteroids can be seen at the bottom left of the image.
It was a VERY windy night, which explains the jitter.
