Certainly looks like it - based on my post-Midnite visual observations oer Guam, it appears that Asteroid 2005 YU55 is coming in southwardly just 2-3 degrees off the Moon's perpendicular line to the Local = Earth horizon, albeit this has likely changed since sunrise.
First there was nothing in the free space surrounding the Moon, then suddenly there it was - IT WAS BRIGHT ENOUGH TO BE SEEN SEPARATELY EVEN THOUGH BOTH IT THE MOON BECAME OBSCURED BY CLOUDS.
