    Default Near-earth Asteroid (Comet?) 2015 TB145 Animation from 10/31/15

    Here's a time-lapse animation of Asteroid-now-Comet 2015 TB145 zipping through Orion on 3/31, from Northern Skies Observatory, Peacham, VT (

    The severe glare from the nearly full moon just 12 degrees away was mitigated by manually nudging the dome a little "too far" to the west after every few images to block much of the bright moonlight.
