John Broughton is an Australian astronomer. He is a prolific discoverer of asteroids. His observations are done at Reedy Creek Observatory in Queensland (IAU Observatory Code: 428).

Discoveries and research[edit]

Broughton discovered a Near Earth Object (NEO), 2004 GA1, on 11 April 2004. This is considered the first amateur discovery of a large, potentially hazardous NEO.

He discovered two comets, now designated P/2005 T5 (Broughton) and C/2006 OF2 (Broughton), on 3 November 2005.

He has produced two software applications, scantracker and scanalyser, for the Drift-Scan Timing of Asteroid Occulations. These are available online for free.

Awards and grants[edit]

Broughton was one of five astronomers who won "Gene Shoemaker Near-Earth Object Grants" from the Planetary Society in 2002. The money was used to purchase a CCD camera.
