HUNTING ASTEROIDS

Most asteroids are too faint for amateur instruments to detect, Still, there are several hundred within reach of a 3 inch (75 mm) telescope. For most observers, the question is: where do I look?

FINDING NEW ONES

A handful of programs at professional observatories are devoted to the search for asteroids. One approach is to photograph a portion of sky, wait a day or two, and re-photograph it. By comparing the two images, any object that moved between the exposures—a definite asteroid candidate—can be identified.
