Description

Since March 2017, the refurbished 1.2m Kryoneri telescope near the Greek town of Kryoneri has been used for the NELIOTA project.

NELIOTA (Near-Earth object Lunar Impacts and Optical TrAnsients) is devised to detect flashes of light caused by tiny pieces of rock striking the Moon's surface. In addition, it is the first such project that can also determine the temperature of the flashes.

The Observatory is operated by the National Observatory of Athens.
