The possibility of browsing through the largest possible set of astronomical images and download them for inspection is extremely useful in order to find possible unidentified detections of NEOs or other moving objects. A system allowing to perform searches for images covering the expected position of a small solar system object is essential to this end.
The NEO Coordination Centre image database is now linked into the Solar System Object Image Search (SSOIS) system developed by the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC), which can be reached at:
The SSOIS service is able to locate images from dozens of telescopes and observatories. More information can be found on Gwyn, Hill and Kavelaars, PASP 124:579 (2012).
