Got it - a potentially hazardious near earth orbit asteroid of the Amor group. The object is sailing trough the constellation Cancer and is southward bound.

The object is closest to earth at 27. april shining at about 11. mag. This date the object will not rise above my horizon at 60 N but those living further south may grab the asteroid at closest passage.

No wallhanger but still a gratifying catch.

Good catch. Something to do from a light-polluted backyard.  Don't tell the press, else there will be a panic.
