You Too Can Spot the Shadow of an Asteroid on Earth

Millions of asteroids exist in our Solar System. Mostly unknown or poorly known, these rocky objects hold key information about the birth of planets and even about how life appeared on Earth.

From time to time, one of these asteroids will fly in front of a distant star, slightly dimming its light. This event, called an occultation, can be recorded by the Unistellar network.

Check our webpage to learn how to detect an asteroid, where you can spot such a detection and what kind of results have already been achieved by the Unistellar community.
