Radar-imaging of (388188) 2006 DP14

(388188) 2006 DP14 is a near-Earth object that passed about 6.2 lunar distances from Earth on 10 February 2014, and is considered a potentially hazardous object.[1][2] On the night of February 11, 2014 NASA scientists conducted a radar imaging session using the Goldstone 70 metres (230 ft) dish.[1] These observations revealed its basic shape and size; it appears to be about 400×200 m.[1] Amateur and professional astronomers helped track the asteroid in the preceding days, so they would know just where to point the large antenna.[1]
