Asteroid 2000 JU23 Passing the Antennae Galaxies NGC 4038 / NGC 4039 thumbnail
05-Apr-2016
While looking through the data captured of the Antennae galaxies, I discovered a very dim object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as main belt asteroid 2000 JU23, magnitude 18.8

While looking through the data captured of NGC 1365, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. I have identified the object as asteroid 2015 TG237, discovered just last month.

Asteroid 2002 UY1 Passing by NGC 1055 thumbnail

While looking through the data captured last night of NGC 1055, I discovered an object slowly moving through the field of view. It seems to be moving much more slowly than a satellite, so I can only conclude it must be an asteroid. Thanks to Le_Baron on Reddit, the asteroid was identified as 2002 UY1.

Hispania Passing NGC 5101. The Brightest Asteroid I've Ever Seen thumbnail
19-May-2016
Hispania (1915 WT) is the brightest asteroid I've ever seen. It's so bright, I had to remove it from each frame for plate solving to work. Also moving through the frame is another named asteroid: Geowilliams (1984 UL2)
