This calendar offers a summary of nights on large aperture (>2m) facilities allocated to observers who study near-Earth objects. This is by no means a comprehensive list, nor is it a tool for coordinating campaigns, but it does provide a means to facilitate communication between groups. If you are interested in being added to this calendar send a request to with details of your observing capabilities.
