Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity -- in all this vastness -- there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us.

I can't see your second asteroid, just the bright one, but I can tell you this.

The asteroid is (60862), also known as 2000 HJ74, seen at around 09:35 UT (for the green dot) on 31st March 2003

There appear to have been no other known asteroids in the field at that time.
