On October 7, the husband and wife observing team of Imelda Joson and Edwin Aguirre forwarded to Astronomy
an image and an animation of the asteroid 2008 TC3
they received from amateur astronomer friends in Italy. Imelda runs an image service company and is a contributor to Astronomy
The International Astronomical Union named asteroid 6282 "Edwelda" after Imelda and Edwin.
"Here's a sequence of photos and animation of 2008 TC3 taken by our astronomer friends in Italy," Imelda writes. "They're among the first (if not the first) amateur images of the object."
See the image sequence at Astronomy.com's blog post, "First images of asteroid 2008 TC3."
