Re: J002E3 -- 5 minutes late CORRECTION

My sincere apologies -- I plotted Apparent Coordinates instead of
Astrometric from the JPL Horizons output for J002E3 which led me to believe
there was a time error.  Plotted correctly, the slight track shift and the
time error disappear.  A plot showing the relative difference is at: .  Click on "StellaCam" album and
check the first two images.

Closest approach of J002E3 to SAO 139517 was approximately 21:56:40 PST
March 29th.  Video is difficult to reduce and estimated time is within
perhaps 10 seconds of actual.
