Amateur astronomers, get your proposals in for this year's round of Shoemaker NEO Grants! We've just extended the application deadline by two weeks, to June 24, in order to encourage more people to apply. We have thousands of dollars to hand out to serious amateur astronomers to upgrade their equipment to help perform astrometry and follow-up on near Earth object discoveries -- don't miss this opportunity!
