Default 2004 bl 86

Got a decent glimpse of the (edit) asteroid (end edit) 2004 BL86 tonight! it took me a bit to find it, but without sky safari I would have never figured it out! totally loving this program (or app) on my ipad mini and skyfi module. the fact that I can flip everything in the app so that it looks like it does in the EP was crucial. it didn't look much different than a faint star. once I figure out which one it was it was cool to see it ever so slowly moving across the field of view! Now I just need to find a nice adjustable stool for when I need to look at something for extended periods of time.
