Starry Night Pro Plus 6 - How Do I Enter Large Asteroid Database

The starry night pro asteroid.txt file is confusing. There is no real documentation to tell you what format to put it in.

The documentation is a little vague in this area for starry nights. I have downloaded a page of Near Earth Asteroids from the Nasa website but I'm not sure what format starry night requires.

There's 906 objects. I don't want to have to enter them one by one. I want to add a text file or modify one however nowhere is there a help file on how to do it.

I know I can update files but I want to enter a new field - near earth asteroids or potentially hazardous objects ( PHO 's)

Can anyone help?
