In 2014, NASA and asteroid mining company Planetary Resources challenged software developers to write a program that could analyze images of space and identify potential asteroids as part of the Asteroid Data Hunter challenge. Now citizen scientists and amateur astronomers can use that program—running on either a Windows or Mac computer—to help determine whether they have spotted an asteroid in the night sky. The application will tell the user whether a matching asteroid record exists and offer a way to report new findings to the Minor Planet Center, which then confirms and archives new discoveries.
