Efrain Morales captured this image of four sequences of the NEA Eros (Asteroid) from the night of February 1, 2012.
Eros, also known as 433 Eros, is the second-largest near-Earth asteroid. The orbit of asteroid Eros is known to cross that of Mars. It was visited by the NEAR-Shoemaker space probe twice in 1998 and 2000.
