    	One of the members of our asteroid team put together a 3-frame
    animation using our observations, and it was picked up by space.com:

    	We plan to keep observing this object now and again. Unlike the
    asteroids we usually go after, which typically require at least 40 minutes'
    worth of observing to get usable data, this one can be imaged and identified
    in just a few minutes' observing!
