Project synopsis: Given the project refers to the approaching Earth asteroids(AEA) – solar system in the small donotatmosphere  bodies to study the fiber range astrometer and photometric observations by way of, Whose gravity is approaching the Earth’s orbit and expected their invasion into the atmosphere. The last time the world internalizedapproaching Earth asteroids the earth after the fall of the danger that represents our planet, past or future disasters source. Science facing the most difficult task about how avoid the Earth on it asteroids chance of falling, in order to save life on earth and thus keep the world’s Civilization.

The above trading task solution is only possible for the whole of humanity is a joint effort. Such a defense is the basis of modern technologies in joint use. in 2010 the problems of research of the abastumani AstrophysicalObservatory is also  joined. Set up a group of scientists, who wears asteroids astrometerand photometerobservations.

The band in Observatory existing AZT – 11 and AC – 32 on telescope , regular observations began in June 2010. Currently, the observations being AC – 32-at, 40 – cm Double on astrograph and ORI – 22in reflector (Unfortunately AZT – 11 Out of order ). The obtained observational material being processed V. Karazin of Kharkov National University of the existing Chugoevo Observatory, together with the employees. Observations are conducted in the International Scientific fiber network (ISON)-with the European Space Agency (GAIA) with tight cooperation .

Given the purpose of the thread approaching Earth asteroids Equatorial coordinates and physical characteristics determination combination tool (CCD) using. In our project the main objective of the asteroids systematic observations to conduct Particularly in a bodies, for whom Earth heprobability of  is very large.

Existing equipment and installations, which are carried out by the project:

  • 70-cm meniskur telescope (D=900მმ, F=2000მმ, W=f/2).
  • 40-cm Wide double astrograph (D=400მმ, F=3000მმ, W=f/7).
  • ORI – 22 reflector (D=200მმ, F=516მმ, W=f/0.4).
  • A. combination receiver (CCD) Camera, the American-FIL firm, IMG 6303-E model (3000x 2000) pixels 1 pixels-9 Mick.,
  • combination receiver (CCD) Camera, the American-FIL firm, PL9000 brands (3000x 2000) pixels 1 pixels-12 Mick.,
  • combination receiver (CCD) Camera, the American-FIL firm, 4103 – E model (4048x 4048) pixels 1 pixels-24 Mick.

Project Summary

The above mentioned project considers:  composing of the lunar four parameter (P, ρ, C1, C2) atlas and a corresponding  catalog for the first time  (where P – is a variable of polarization degree , ρ – is albedo, C1 and C2 are colour indicators in two different spheres  of  monitoring of  Jupiter’s Galilean Satellites physical characteristics (especially  a satellite “Io” we repeatedly observed changes in a short time interval  that should  be accounted as volcanic activities  monitoring of physical characteristics  of the planet Mars  (the atmosphere, surface envisaging seasons);  the existence of the second inversion points  on polarization curves  that  is recorded  for the planet Mars and Jupiter’s Galilean satellites  by us  for the first time   in the process  of  non-filtered observation. It is desirable to check the different wave length.

The presented project is a major fundamental research,  the implementation of which will promote  the  further development   of the sector. The aim of such researches are  to get a  complete  knowledge on fundamental aspects of phenomena and  real facts, though  the results gained at different stages will have significant practical use.

The equipment and installations: Telescopes: Refractor, meniscal  telescope and a 125-cm reflector (АЗТ – 11); the latest generation of the firm photo-mtrpolarimeter and SBIG Firm ST6 modern charged connected  light receiver.
