If you need to delete one of your discoveries as "does not exist" or "artificial", or flag it as "cometary", etc., please submit the corresponding "action code" through our Submit Action Code Form
Notes on how to begin your own astrometric program are available.
Please ensure that you have read the additional notes on the NEOCP.
Please do not report observations of non-NEOCP objects in the same message as observations of objects on this page!
Please report unsuccessful attempts to detect objects listed here that are NOT listed as `updated' or that have not been updated in the past 24 hours using the NEOCP Blog.
Please note that observations and orbits of objects accessible via this service are made available only for your personal use. They are not to be promulgated via any medium. The data are preliminary until they appear on an MPEC or MPS.
It is possible that some of the objects listed here are comets,
either recognised or currently unrecognised as such.
All reports of new cometary activity should be made using the following
(Reports of activity for known comets made to the above web form will be
New reports of cometary activity must be made using this web form in order to be considered for inclusion in any resulting MPEC announcing cometary status. We do not flag suspected comets on this page because we do not wish to influence observers.
You can now access ephemerides for the variant orbits used in the uncertainty plots from the pages listing the offsets from the nominal solutions.
You are reminded that a cross-reference of designations that have appeared here previously is available elsewhere.
If none of these objects are within the capabilities of your system, check out the Dates of Last Observation of NEOs not seen recently (in R.A. order), the list of bright recovery opportunities, or the Spaceguard Central Node's Priority List for alternate useful targets.
