if it were an asteroid it wouldn't show up! asteroids are small compared to planets and reflect reletively no light at all. the only way the see an
asteroid is when it passes in front of, or occults, a star.
as for ot moving? is ground moving too? antartica is a very windy place, it being a desert and all... also, there's nothing else in the sky to give a
frame of reference. in other words, your eyes are playing tricks on you.
EDIT: SO just posted before i did... as for it being a sattellite? i doubt it, it's moving far too slowly if you look at the time stamps.
i stand by saying it's not an asteroid though.
