Retweeted by Minor Planet CenterThe MPC's Interim Director, Matt Holman, steps up to the #SBAG mic to talk about the Whipple mission.Today's #AsteroidDay Award for Dumbest & Most Misleading Headline goes to the @Daily_Express. Congratulations!: http://t.co/800ZwwSg0wAnd MANTIS would visit 9 (nine!) asteroids during its mission. @JLGalache @asrivkin #SBAG@djmer1 The whole planet sees approximately the same Moon phase, so only way to avoid Full Moon is to survey from space.Happy #AsteroidDay!

Retweeted by Minor Planet Center@sondy We hope Arecibo keeps zapping #asteroids for a long long time to come.@sondy You're the honeybadger of asteroid observation.@sondy ...during Portorican blackouts...The MPC has a list of #asteroid flybys on the sidebar of their main page (updated in real time!): http://t.co/qSYvAAGwqn #AsteroidDayDifficult....but not impossible! The ground-based surveys soldier on in spite of Full Moon. @sondy.@IAU_org sets the astronomy standards. The MPC *implements* those related to asteroids and comets. @zuluagajorge @AstromodelJoyce@asrivkin Thanks for the concern!.@pscherbring ~95% of observations come from surveys.@erinleeryan Sounds a lot like our days :-).@AmyMainzer at #SBAG reminds us of the (good #AsteroidDay) impact of #asteroid 2008 TC3: http://t.co/JAJ94j4qM0Paul Chodas reminds us that "every day is an asteroid day at NASA": we discover asteroids with spacecraft and ground telescopes daily #SBAG
Retweeted by Minor Planet Center@pscherbring http://t.co/4W1HaiiLBQ@djmer1 Full Moon's brightness makes it harder to see dimmer asteroids. During New Moon the sky is much darker so can detect more asteroids.Here's what happens on a good #AsteroidDay. (It's an interactive plot. WebGL required!): http://t.co/AnqPYyIqJC@realpj Probably both..@djmer1 The graph plots observations processed, not asteroid impacts!@Yeqzids Bingo! :-)Anybody want to guess what the dark-light bands are?@Yeqzids It's a huge dump (~1.1 million) of observations from the LINEAR survey, using the US Air Force's Space Surveillance Telescope.At the Minor Planet Center, *every* day is #AsteroidDay (14.2 million observations published in 2014): http://t.co/Vhvmag4XZx@NEOShieldTeam No probs, we're here to help.Psst! @neoshieldteam Ceres was discovered in 1801. #AsteroidDay http://t.co/8YysQdUpSvToday we commemorate the elk who selflessly gave their lives in #Tunguska 107 years ago so humans could celebrate #AsteroidDay.
