Past Earth flying large asteroid

Near-earth asteroid 2017 BS32 (20 meters in diameter), yesterday flew 160 000 km from Earth, 2.5 times closer to the moon.

Telescope during the shoot was moving on the celestial sphere with the angular velocity of the asteroid. Therefore, the asteroid looks like a point and the star background came out blurry. In the animation below captures the moment of exit of the asteroid 2017 BS32 of the shadow of the Earth.
