Notes: Until September 16th this daily news page, which had included links to news and science papers as well as some occasional original reporting, was called Major News About Minor Objects. Without the news-link and science-link sections, this page was renamed as The Tracking News to more accurately reflect its continuing purpose.

The latest news: framed access (best), RSS news feed (flags updates), or redirection - Note: A/CC has a main Web site and a backup site.

Navigation tips: Use the << and >> arrows on the menus for each regular section (Observers, Risks, etc.) to move to the previous and next day's news for that section. Use the Index menu item to access specific days this year through a calendar interface. And use the all-up news archive to access news from any time since A/CC began in early 2002. To keep track of what's new each day, watch the Chronology section.
