Look To The Stars

The Constellation Of Orion.
Just had a great, if albeit brief observing session outside with my binoculars, i was hoping to see Asteroid 2012 DA14 on it's near earth miss and despite some broken cloud im 99% certain that i saw it as it passed through the constellation of the Plough, although it was very faint, but using averted vision im more or less certain that i saw it.

So what else did i observe, well again through the breaks in the cloud, i observed the Andromeda Galaxy, The Pleiadies, Jupiter, The Moon and the Orion Nebula, not bad considering it was all seen with just a pair of binoculars.
