Here are some images which were captured using the Faulkes Telescope North at the Going Nova Science Festival
which was held at Horizon Scotland at the Business Park in Forres in the north of Scotland.

The event ran from Thursday 22nd March 2007 until Saturday 24th March.
During the Festival, the telescope was under the control of members of  the north of Scotland's two mainland astronomy clubs.
SIGMA, Moray's Astronomy Club and  Highlands Astronomical Society.
Images obtained using the Faulkes Telescope (North), operated by Las Cumbres Observatory.

This is an animation of 4 frames which shows how the NEO moves relative to the background stars.
The small white line which shows up in the first frame is probably due to a cosmic ray hitting the camera chip.
