Nearby objects (neighbors)
Many interesting astronomical questions start with asking, "what is near this
object"? To enable these kinds of questions, the list below shows all SDSS objects within 0.5
arcminutes of the selected object.
Finding nearby objects is computationally intensive, so we have precomputed
a 0.5-arcminute neighbors search for each object in the photoObjAll table. These precomputed
neighbor searches are stored in the
Neighboring objects within 0.5 arcminutes
