Nice work, Denis.

Watch out this October (2017 Oct 12 to be precise) as the object 2012 TC4 discovered and followed for 7 days back in 2012 is due to make a close approach possibly passing closer than the geostationary satellites. It will be visible from the UK during the evening of October 11 fairly low in the sky. Hopefully it should be recovered by one of the surveys some days prior to this as its positionally uncertainty is currently tens of degrees!
