2014 JO25 fly-by tonight

This large NEO is making a relatively close flyby of the Earth tonight and it is currently crossing a galaxy strewn field in CVn near the zenith from the UK. It's around 10th mag and moving at around 4 deg/hr. Here's a timelapse video from Chelmsford showing it moving across my sky. The FoV is 36x24 arcmin.

Re: 2014 J025

Nice one Nick.  Thanks for posting!

Was hoping to see it for myself, but weather didn't play ball.
