Asteroid Hunt!

Exercise 2. The game is simple. Find as many asteroids as you can in the allotted time. Use the Get Fields tool to call up different images - select Run, Camcol, and Field at random. For each asteroid you find, record the run, camcol and field, and the approximate position of the asteroid in the field. Your teacher will tell you the time limit. After time runs out, be ready to show all the asteroids you found to the other groups. The group that finds the most asteroids wins. Ready, set, go!

Launch the Get Fields tool
