2008  TC3

A live light curve of asteroid 2008 CU3, an estimated 5-m diameter object, as it plunges towards the Earth.
The data is taken from observations by Ramón Naves & Montse Campàs (MPC 213), Gustavo Muler (MPC J47), Juan Antonio Henríquez (J51) and Rafael Benavides (MPC J53). Follow the asteroid as it brightens before entering the atmosphere and - presumably - breaking up over Northern Sudan around 02:45UT on October 7th.
