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.

Once in awhile they will change the URL for asteroid files. Some of them have changed. As always go to the source for current one's.
I think these are current right now. You can change Cartes Du Ciel to update current asteroid files. I even added the urls that were not in CDC.
