The International Astronomical Search Collaboration (IASC) is a citizen science program. It provides high quality astronomical data to citizen scientists around the world. They are able to make original astronomical discoveries and participate in hands-on astronomy. This service is provided at no cost!
Congratulations to the students of the National Dali Senior High School (Taiwan)! In 2014, these students discovered the trans-Neptunian object 2014 GE45. This is a large 200-km ball of ice and rock located at an average distance of 56 AU from the Sun, out past the orbit of Pluto. Through the International Astronomical Union, it has been officially named Zhulong by the students at the school.

Welcome to the International Astronomical Search Collaboration! (IASC = "Isaac")
The All India Asteroid Search Campaign, All Iran Asteroid Search Campaign, and International Asteroid Search Campaign are now underway. Happy Hunting!
It is important that you understand how to use Astrometrica, identify true and false signatures (i.e., not all moving things are asteroids), and prepare a clean and accurate MPC report. If you can do these things, your citizen science group will be successful in discovering new Main Belt asteroids and making important near-Earth object observations.
