I've been involved with IASC (The International Asteroid Search Collaboration) for the past three years. Hardin-Simmons University sends us images from the Pan-STARRS telescope in Hawaii and we use astrometry software to look for asteroids and then send our findings back to HSU who coordinates with the Minor Planet Center at Harvard. So far my groups have found 5 or 6 preliminary asteroid candidates. NITARP inspired me to look for this project, among others, that I've incorporated into my class.

The 2018 NITARP application is now available! Go here for the instructions and here to actually upload your PDF file. Applications are due by 3pm Pacific time, Tuesday September 19, 2017.
