The Search for Vulcanoid Asteroids

The Search for Vulcanoid Asteroids: It is a inner solar system quest that has been on-going since at least 1859.  The very innermost region of our solar system is known as the stable Vulcanoid zonei, and remains largely unexplored.  An asteroid whose mean distancei’s distance to the Sun would be declared to reside within the Vulcanoid zone and would be called a Vulcanoid asteroid.  Because of reecent advances in astronomy, inexpensive CCDs, portable telescopes, image processing software, and the Inteternet you have an unprecedented opportunity for discovering Vulcanoid asteroids and to add to our knowledge of this region of space.
