Bulgarians Discover 200 New Asteroids

Date: 12.09.2006

The National Astronomy Observatory Rozhen has discovered 200 new asteroids, fourteen heavenly bodies have Bulgarian names. Bulgaria's Minister of Education Daniel Valchev visited the observatory Monday.

The biggest telescope in Eastern Europe is on Rozhen peak in the Rhodopes Mountains, southeastern Bulgaria. The telescope, though, was manufactures in the 1960s and cannot observe satellites, complained Kiril Panov, the institute director. He asked for 20 million dollars for modern observation equipment. Scientists told Minister Valchev they worried about the launching of night ski runs because the illumination hinders the observations.
