Anglo-Australian Near-Earth Asteroid Survey
|Survey type||astronomical survey|
|Target||near-Earth object, comet, supernova|
The Anglo-Australian Near-Earth Asteroid Survey (AANEAS) operated from 1990-96, becoming one of the most prolific programs of its type in the world. Apart from leading to the discovery of 38 near-Earth asteroids, 9 comets, 63 supernovae, several other astronomical phenomena and the delivery of a substantial proportion of all NEA astrometry obtained worldwide (e.g., 30% in 1994-95), AANEAS also led to many other scientific advances[clarification needed] which were reported in the refereed literature.
