It was disappointing.  A half hour devoted to two guys talking about asteroids, and some old views of a couple of other asteroids, but nothing to see in the fly by.  Maybe a different site would have offered more.  Oh well. :(

It really was a let down wasn't? I believe they did show it, but it was so small you could hardly see it go by. I'm glad it was boring and not coming straight at us and getting bigger.  :shock:  8-[  Solitary
