Stunning results with new NEO target program

You know that saying about waiting for a bus, and then two come along at once...well, with a new research project being carried out by amateur astronomers in the UK and Italy, in this case it was 7...new asteroids

Nick Howes, equipment consultant for UK Magazine Astronomy Now, has been using the twin 2m Faulkes Telescope North and Faulkes Telescope South for a few years, on comet observation and measurement work, but in the past few months, working with the team involving himself, two Italian astronomers, and Faulkes Telescope Project (UK affiliate to LCOGT based in University of Glamorgan), they have been working on an ongoing project to look at NEO objects.
