Asiago (Cimbrian: Slege, German: Schlägen) is the name of both a major Italian PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) cheese and a minor township (population roughly 6,500) in the surrounding plateau region (the Altopiano di Asiago or Altopiano dei Sette Comuni, Asiago plateau) in the Province of Vicenza in the Veneto region of Northeastern Italy.
The Asiago-DLR Asteroid Survey (ADAS; obs. code: 209) is an astronomical survey to search for comets and asteroids, with special emphasis on near-Earth objects.
Asteroids are minor planets, especially those of the inner Solar System.
The Cima Ekar Observing Station (Stazione osservativa di Asiago Cima Ekar; obs. code: 098) is an astronomical observatory on the crest of Cima Ekar, a mountain ridge located approximately 4 kilometers southeast of and 350 m higher than the town of Asiago, Italy.
A comet is an icy small Solar System body that, when passing close to the Sun, warms and begins to release gases, a process called outgassing.
The Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) is an astronomical observatory and the world's largest optical/near-infrared extremely large telescope now under construction.
The Galileo National Telescope, (Telescopio Nazionale Galileo; TNG; code: Z19) is a 3.58-meter Italian telescope, located at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, Spain.
This list of the largest optical reflecting telescopes with objective diameters of or greater is sorted by aperture, which is one limit on the light-gathering power and resolution of a reflecting telescope's optical assembly.
Merate Astronomical Observatory is an old observatory in Merate (Lecco), Italy.
A near-Earth object (NEO) is any small Solar System body whose orbit can bring it into proximity with Earth.
An observatory is a location used for observing terrestrial or celestial events.
Padua (Padova; Pàdova) is a city and comune in Veneto, northern Italy.
