This is a shot taken today of asteroid 2003 UV11 which is currently passing by the Earth .

This asteroid is about 5 times further away than the Moon but is close enough and large enough to be seen by large powered telescopes.

The asteroid is 600 metres in size and is only visible from the northern hempisphere.
