Asteroid Zoo

The AsteroidZoo community has exhausted the data that are available at this time. With all the data examined we have paused the experiment, and before users spend more time we want to make sure that we can process your finds through the Minor Planet Center and get highly reliable results. While we are paused, there will be updates to both the analysis process, and the process of confirming results with the Minor Planet Center. Updates will be posted as they become available.
