2011 11 08 – 2005 YU55

The excitement of catching a glimpse of 2005 YU55 is in the air tonight. My skies are currently overcast, but according to my CSC, it will clear later (even though I’ll have to fight the moonlight for a view). For those of you that don’t have a telescope or skies tonight for viewing 2005 YU55, you can watch a live webcast of the asteroid making its pass via Clay Center Observatory at Live webcast from Clay Center Observatory

For assistance in locating it from your site, Sky & Telescope has a good article with links to a finder map. Sky and Telescope article by Kelly Beatty

Here’s hoping many of you will get an opportunity tonight to see it firsthand!
