We were preparing to go our and observe and image the close flyby of asteroid 2005 YU55.
It was scheduled to be within one degree of Altair at 18:07:30 EST yesterday Tuesday November 8th, 2011…. BUT it was totally cloudy over the observatory.
Too bad, but what with the near full moon it would have been difficult at best in any event.
Also the only imaging system up and running right now has a very narrow field of view. Too narrow to point accurately without a better prediction of where the rock was going to be.
