List Of Minor Planets
This is a list of numbered minor planets in the Solar System, in numerical order. As of April 2018[update] there are 757,626 minor planets of which 516,386 are numbered (secured discoveries). Every month, several thousand minor planets are newly numbered and added to this list (see index).[1][2] It is expected that the upcoming survey by the LSST
LSST
will discover another 5 million minor planets during the next ten years—a tenfold increase from current numbers.[3] While all asteroids with a diameter above 10 kilometers have already been discovered, there might be as many as 10 trillion 1-meter-sized asteroids or larger out to the orbit of Jupiter;[4] and more than a trillion minor planets in the Kuiper belt. There are 21,264 named minor planets mostly for people and figures from mythology and fiction.[2] Approximately 96% of all numbered objects remain unnamed

Observatorio Astronomico Pla D'Arguines
This is a list of observatory codes, or IAU codes, with their corresponding astronomical observatories.[1] The Minor Planet Center (MPC) – a service of the International Astronomical Union – assigns for each registered observatory a 3-digit code in the range 000 to Z99. The code serves as a unique identifier for observations taken of hundreds of thousands of minor planets and thousands of comets orbiting in the Solar System. More than 150 millions such astrometric records exist.[2] This list is based on MPC's periodically published and revised "List Of Observatory Codes". Over time, the number of astronomical observatories worldwide has been growing constantly. As of March 2018, this list contains 2077 observatory codes published in MPC's official list).[1] The registry is limited to observatories which perform minor planet observations. While this includes most optical telescopes of note and a great many amateur facilities, it does not include the U.S

George Observatory
Brazos Bend State Park is a 4,897-acre (1,982 ha) state park along the Brazos River in Needville, Texas, run by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. The park is a haven for a diverse mix of native wildlife and plants covering an equally diverse range of ecosystems. Brazos Bend contains areas of coastal prairie, bottomland forest, and a wide range of wetlands including open and semi-open lakes and transitional marshlands. Highlights of the Park's numerous inhabitants include over 300 species of resident and visiting migratory birds and mammals such as the white-tailed deer, nine-banded armadillo, raccoon, and North American river otter. The most noteworthy and popular residents of the park are the relatively large population of American alligators

Campo Imperatore Near Earth Object Survey
The CINEOS program (Campo Imperatore Near-Earth Object Survey), started in 2001, is dedicated to the discovery and follow-up of near-Earth objects (NEOs), namely asteroids and comets which periodically approach or intersect the Earth's orbit. In particular CINEOS is addressed to the discovery of Atens and Interior-Earth Objects (IEOs) by extending survey coverage at small solar elongations, and to the discovery of the other kind of NEOs by observing with longer exposures (up to a limiting magnitude of 21) in the opposition region. Between August 2001 and November 2004, CINEOS measured more than 61000 asteroid positions and discovered more than 1500 new objects, including several NEOs and one Centaur (planetoid)
