2005 XZ7

This is a asteroid, I discovered 


On Dec 7, 2005, while scanning images taken by a ccd camera, I noticed a streak.

After comparing it what objects cause streak's, I sumbitted my results to the people who took the picture.

They in turn measured the positon of the streak, and sent that info to the MPC ( minor planet centre )

I later received confirmation, it was a very small asteroid. My first descovery of a asteroid.


Info on my Discovery


Image I was looking at, when I noticed the streak, causes by the asteroid motion across the sky. The telescope with the ccd camera, follows the stars. So anything moving causes a streak.
