Asteroid '199 KW4' - as seen by SPHERE, and artist's impression
Asteroid '199 KW4' - as seen by SPHERE (left), and artist's impression: hurtling past Earth at a speed of 70,000 km/hour made the binary near-Earth asteroid extremely difficult to image. And while undeniably blurry, ESO says that the angular resolution in the image is equivalent to picking out a single building in New York - from Paris. Images: ESO.
