Several dozen persons gathered at Westport’s Rolnick Observatory on Bayberry Lane late today to view an asteroid which came within 17,150 miles from Earth’s atmosphere. Franco Fellah (r), a member of the Westport Astronomical Society, said the asteroid was in view for several minutes. “It was seen in the bottom of the viewing field around the 5 o”clock position,” he said. Visitors spent time in advance looking at Jupiter. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
