Space Guard Centre, Knighton
The Spaceguard Centre is a working observatory, and the main source of information about near Earth objects in the UK. Located in Knighton, Powys.
The Spaceguard Centre is the National Near Earth Objects Information Centre (NNEOIC). It is the only organisation in the UK dedicated to addressing the hazard of Near Earth Objects. NEOs are asteroids and comets that come close to, and sometimes collide with the Earth. Such impacts can have devastating effects – they have in the past and will in the future unless we use available technologies to prevent them.
