Observing Asteroids

Your teacher will arrange for observing time on a Remote-controlled Telescope

Directions on how to set up the telescope and take images of your asteroids are provided with each Activity. You may use any source to pick an asteroid to image. You may also pick an asteroid from the list below. It is a list of relatively bright asteroids that will be high in the sky in the early evening for the months listed.

If you are doing the Asteroid Colors observing activity, you will need to take images of as least one standard star in the list below.
