EURONEAR - Home
NOTE: Since 26 Jan 2022, the EURONEAR mirror responds to the main domain name www.euronear.org,
due to the need to accommodate some maintenance of the main server (please notice in your location
the https://s141.central.ucv.ro/ address) which could take a few weeks.
Welcome to the new EURONEAR website!
The EUROpean Near Earth Asteroids Research (EURONEAR) is a project aiming to improve the European contribution
about Near Earth Asteroids (NEAs). It was established in May 2006 by Ovidiu Vaduvescu and Mirel Birlan (former Romanian
astronomers) at IMCCE, Observatoire de Paris, France. Nowadays it includes 43
members from 9 countries and more than 100
collaborators (counting many amateurs and students)
who contributed during the past years to this project.
Due to technical problems with old IMCCE server, in December 2016 we moved permanently to a new host.
The EURONEAR main server is provided and maintained by the EURONEAR member
Lucian Curelaru (software developer and amateur astronomer) who is using
the RCS-RDS internet provider (in Brasov, Romania), while the domain name was bought from
Namecheap.com (a company registered in the USA).
In September 2019 the main server was duplicated in the new EURONEAR mirror server
hosted by the University of Craiova (Romania).
