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 Neighbors table.
