In late July, I a photographed the constellation of Capricorn, which one of the stars was not a star but the asteroid [(4) Vesta].

But to be identified need to use a good atlas, so the best way to verify is to make at least two images, where it will be shown the movement of asteroids on the background of the same stars. Unfortunately, we all know what the "aura" was the almost pseudo-Summer, so the opportunity to take another picture of Capricorn had to wait almost... 2 weeks.

In the end it worked and on this mini-animation shows that the asteroid is moving, and it is back - as it is in opposition
