Asteroid 2012 DA14 Orbit Video Using ORSA & Starry Night Pro
I used both programs to plot the upcoming Close Passage. It looks a lot like 2011 MD to me.

Look at the video where you are viewing from the Asteroid. It looks like closest approach is over the Indian Ocean, then it passes over the Middle East...mostly.

Just a little side note. About the time this asteroid makes it's closest approach, Comet PANSTARRS C/2011 L4 will be around magnitude 4.6 and visible in the Southern Hemisphere. Nice.

Have you taken into account what might happen if its orbit is perturbed by a meatball??

I suppose it's always possible this smallish asteroid may encounter a space meatball. However, most of the larger space meatballs have been plotted, so, it would probably be a smallish space meatball if one were encountered. In fact, if you look around timemark 5:57 you will see that the larger meatball perturbers, Ceres, Pallas, and Vesta have already been factored into the orbit. February 15, 2013 is a long way off, lots of time for many, many more observations.

I set my computer to calculate what the region of uncertainty will look like during next year's close approach given the current astrometric data. I ran a series of Monte Carlo solutions from the data to generate the region of uncertainty and then loaded it into ORSA to see what it will look like during the February 2013 approach. It misses earth of course, but exactly how close it gets will really depend on how precise the current orbital data really is. The center of the region, the most likely location for the asteroid during the apporach, is at about the closest possible point of approach. The "tails" of the region of uncertainty are farther from earth. It's hard to describe, but I'll make a video of it later.

The green lines appear to be the same as the blue points and sometimes appear to be 'attached' to the white path lines. Why do the green lines sometimes appear to be to the side and detached from the white lines as around time 4:57?

Oh! The 'green lines' are actually Print. OK.
I can't seem to get anything higher than 480p to work.

Yeah, the green lines are just a mess of labels for the potential positions of the asteroid. The way it renders them always face-on to the camera makes it look odd at times but also sometimes make it easier to see the 3d arrangement of the uncertainty region.

I'll take a look later if I get the chance, hopefully I can get a hold of the raw fits files. I imagine it's a difficult target given the current moon phase.
