(Expérience pour la Recherche d'Objets Sombres)
(search for MACHOs)

EROS (for Expérience pour la Recherche d'Objets Sombres, i.e., Experience in Searching for Dark Objects) was a survey to identify MACHOs (assumed to be brown dwarfs) by searching for gravitational microlensing transients while watching stars in the Magellanic Clouds. EROS-1 observations were carried out in 1990-1995 and EROS-2 in 1996-2003, by the European Southern Observatory at the La Silla Observatory site. Some variable stars and supernovae were observed.
