(search for microlensing events)

MOA (for Microlensing Observations in Astrophysics) is a survey carried out by a special-purpose telescope at Mt. John University Observatory in New Zealand to watch for microlensing transients, to identify possible extra-solar planets, clues regarding dark matter, and other information available from observations of such events. The search began in 2005 and continues.
