Effect of different ecliptic latitude cuts on NEOCP submissions
A plot from The Sky the Falling? NEO Follow-up in the Era of LSST
This is an interactive version of Figure 8 from Wagg+2023. It demonstrates how varying the minimum absolute ecliptic latitude can affect the nightly traffic and purity of the Near-Earth Object Confirmation Page. This will be an essential tool for differentiating between Near-Earth Objects and Main Belt Asteroids during follow-up in the early years of LSST.
Try hovering on different locations of the plot to see how different ecliptic latitude cuts will change which objects you'll find on the NEOCP!
