Photos of close asteroid 2014 JO25

Mark Hunter in the village of Woolpit in the U.K. captured this image with an 8-inch telescope. He wrote: “13 shots at various exposures from 30s – 2mins. Stacked in pixinsight, finished off in lightroom.”

Gary Marshall wrote: “Asteroid is the faint black streak moving from near bottom center towards top left.”

Steven Bellavia of Mattituck, New York captured this image of 2014 JO25. He also created a time-lapse video of the asteroid, which he posted on Flickr, but, sadly, I could not get it to show up on this page. You can see Steven’s video here. It’s from single 30-second shots, where this fast moving asteroid appears as a streak, entering from the right side of the frame.

Bottom line: Photos of large asteroid 2014 JO25, which swept past Earth on April 19, 2017.
