THE IMCCE VIRTUAL OBSERVATORY
The video presents the Feb. 15th, 2013 encounter between the Earth and the near Earth object named 2012 DA14. The camera travels in the solar system onboard the asteroid, watching in the direction of the Earth center.
The video is composed of individual scenes computed and embeded by the Skybot3D software (not yet available) . The relative position between 2012 DA14 and the Earth-Moon system is computed every hour, then every 10 min., and finally every minute during the closest approach. All the colored dots in the background are the known asteroids visible in the field of view.
