Asteroid 2012 DA14 and Meteor from Australia
Copyright: Colin Legg
Colin wrote: "I captured this footage starting 3.24 am from a dark sky site 350 km east of Perth. Just after camera rolling, a beautiful meteor burned across the sky, and amazingly, passed right through my camera's field of view, lingering while the debris train swept up and out of view. In addition, the sky was also very busy swarming with countless man made satellites. The asteroid is the bright object at left moving down the screen."

Jean wrote: "The video begins on feb 15th 00:00 UTC and finishes on 16th 12:00 UTC, the time acceleration is near 890x. MPC ephemeris on feb 10th where used. The camera field is approximatly set to unaided eye vision and the viewing axis is locked to the Earth center. As the visible side of Earth is mainly in darkness, it is slighly lightened for a more informative animation."
