Are you a serious amateur astronomer who enjoys the challenge of following up on the discoveries of faint near-Earth objects? Would an upgrade to your equipment make you more productive? Then propose for the 2010 round of The Planetary Society's Shoemaker Near-Earth Object Grant Program, launched today. This program counts as one of the Society's greatest successes, where a relatively small amount of money provided entirely by donations from our generous members has made a big difference in our knowledge of the hazards in the space environment near Earth.
The due date for proposals is June 10, 2010.
