Please consider making a donation to support the restoration of Perth Observatory’s “Comet Hunter” Near-Earth Asteroid Object Telescope.
With NASA identifying over 20,000 known Near-Earth Objects in 2019, it is crucial that we are able to track and monitor these objects to prevent potential collisions with Earth. As physicist Stephen Hawking recognized, asteroid collisions pose a significant threat to our planet, with the potential to cause tsunamis, firestorms, and impact winters.
In 1991, the Perth Observatory commissioned the Mike Candy Telescope, a groundbreaking asteroid and comet tracking telescope named after the former Government Astronomer of Western Australia. However, this telescope is in need of restoration in order to continue conducting Near-Earth Asteroid research.
