This image is a colour composite image, based
on three exposures with the Wide Field Imager (WFI) at the
MPG/ESO 2.2-m telescope at the La Silla Observatory. The
exposures were made through V, R and I-band filters.
On the image another (closer) asteroid reveals itself - the coloured dots to the left reveal that this object moved between the three exposures.
