Fast Mover Captured by WISE

And speaking of asteroids, is that a UFO from Mars passing through the Orion Nebula? No, it's Near-Earth Object 1998 KN3. The image was snapped by the WISE (Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer) telescope, which has been recommissioned (past it's intended mission, now completed) to search for both asteroids and comets.
