If you own a telescope or consider yourself a star-gazer, this one is for you.

NASA is calling on anyone who fancies themselves an amateur astronomer to help them track down asteroids.

The space agency is trying learn more about "near-earth-Objects" like asteroids. Scientists want to know where they are, how they move and how much light they give off, all ahead of launch scheduled for 2016.

The project is called Target Asteroids.
