Here it is: video of asteroid 2012 DA14 as seen at 12:59UTC from Samford Valley Observatory, Brisbane, Australia. It is moving towards us at "a closing speed of five miles per second."

This asteroid thing is absolutely amazing although at the same time to me at least it's pretty scary. Hopefully it stays well away from us regardless, God knows what would have happened if that asteroid had came any closer to us.
