From telescopes in Australia, NASA has released the first moving images of the space object to make a near miss of Earth on February 15. In a previous report NASA's and the European Space Agency's images were shown. This event (see link below) is on film.
According to a NPR report, “... this event is one for the record books – the first time scientists have been able to predict something so big coming so close."
And now it is seen, vaguely, but real, moving a 'few' thousands of miles from planet Earth.
