Shoemaker Near Earth Object (NEO) grants have been helping amateur astronomers and professionals at smaller observatories since 1997. We talk to two of the recipients about their efforts to find and track these rocks that cross our path. Emily Lakdawalla illuminates the not so dark side of the moon. Bruce Betts tells us What's Up! in the sky, and presents his latest space trivia contest.
