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 . The park is open year-round, with the exception of several weekends a year during which it is closed for controlled hunts to manage the white-tailed deer population

Observatorio Astronomico Pla D'Arguines
This is a list of OBSERVATORY CODES, or IAU CODES, with their corresponding astronomical observatories . The Minor Planet Center (MPC) – a service of the International Astronomical Union – assigns for each registered observatory a 3-digit code. 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. 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 May 2016, MPC's official list contains a total of 1972 observatories. 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

Siding Spring Survey
The SIDING SPRING SURVEY (SSS) was a near-Earth object search program that used the 0.5 metres Uppsala Southern Schmidt Telescope at Siding Spring Observatory , New South Wales , Australia . It was the southern hemisphere counterpart of the Catalina Sky Survey (CSS) located in the Santa Catalina Mountains on Mount Bigelow , near Tucson , Arizona , USA . The survey was the only professional search for dangerous asteroids being made in the Southern Hemisphere . SSS was jointly operated by the University of Arizona and the Australian National University , with funding from NASA . SSS (IAU observatory code E12) was located at Siding Spring Observatory (IAU observatory code 413) at 31°18′S 149°06′E / 31.3°S 149.1°E / -31.3; 149.1 , approximately 400 km (250 mi) north-west of Sydney at an altitude of about 1,150 metres (3,770 ft). Images of 30 seconds' exposure time were collected using a 4×4K charge-coupled device at intervals and then compared with software

Osservatorio Di Campo Imperatore
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) . In June–September 2003, CINEOS was ranked fifth in the world for the number of discoveries (sixth place in the period June–August 2004) and has been the first Italian professional program to discover a NEO and an asteroid beyond the orbit of Jupiter
