NEO stans for near-Earth object. These bodies are generally asteroids or coments such that because of their orbits could be close into Earth’s surroundings. NEOs can be classified into:

• Meteroids: with a diameter lower than 50 meters

• Near Earth Comets (NEC): with orbital period lower than 200 years

• Near Earth Asteroid (NEA): most of NEO objects are in this category
