The Comet Chasers Team is really enjoying working with so many schools, students and others in support of the DART Mission.  We thought it would be good to share some of the things are our schools have been doing.  (The pages are work in progress.)

At the Eisteddfod and other events

Montgomery Church in Wales School

Radnor Primary School, Cardiff

St Marys Catholic Primary, Bridgend

White Rose Primary, New Tredegar

Here you can see some of the amazing images that Comet Chasers have made for the DART Mission.  (Other images are also available on the individual schools' observation pages.)  

Scroll through them to see all the schools and individuals involved.

Can you spot the differences between images taken before DART impact on 2022-09-26 and those taken after? 

These will be added to the data set to be analysed for NASA. #WorkingWithNASA #SavingThePlanet

Helping NASA and ESA save the Earth from an asteroid strike!

We are very excited that we are going to be helping the NASA DART Mission, by making observations of asteroid system Didymos and Diamorphos.  We have received a grant from the Royal Astronomical Society to help us develop resources linked to the Mission, and to work with schools, and more generally at outreach events.  If you would like to be part of it then email helen.usher @
