Thanks for putting them all on one post. Looks good. I'll check for a few more, I know there's some I have forgot.

Bob Holmes is a very dedicated NEO observer. He started off as an amateur and is a currently working full-time on a NASA grant to provide asteroid and NEO observations. He built his own 24" and 32" instruments, and he produced more NEO follow-up observations than anyone else last year.

Bob's web site is here: http://ari.home.mchsi.com/index.htm

We very much need and appreciate the efforts made by other sites including H55 to make follow up observations for us. Any time we spend making follow up obs takes us away from surveying "virgin" sky so follow up obs made by others aids in finding potential impactors. We acknowledge and thank all sites that provide follow up of our discoveries on our home page

I have another to add. NASA-JPL recently opened a watch page. This is the main one.

http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/index.cfm
others from that link include:
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/overview.cfm
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/facts.cfm
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/missions.cfm
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/news.cfm
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/images.cfm
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/video.cfm
http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/asteroidwatch/download.cfm

Looks like an interesting set of pages.
William

A copy paste added today due to sticky thread consolidation.
From Cloudy Nights member RockandIceHunter on 11/05/09 07:15 PM:

Hey all,

Mike Gilmer suggested I join the site. Not sure how much time I'll have to read and contribute, but discussions about NEOs are always good.

I'd suggest people seriously interested in NEOs, especially if you are interested in observing them, take a look at my Minor Planet Mailing List


I started it back in 1997 when I was an amateur just starting out observing asteroids and comets. Most of the professionals and amateurs actively involved in this field can be found there.

I don't mean to direct people there instead of here. Just pointing it out to anyone who isn't aware of it.

Richard
