Spaceguard

The term Spaceguard loosely refers to a number of efforts to discover and study near-Earth objects (NEO). Asteroids are discovered by telescopes which repeatedly survey large areas of sky. Efforts which concentrate on discovering NEOs are considered part of the "Spaceguard Survey," regardless of which organization they are affiliated with.
