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 into Dark Matter, and other information available from observations of such events. The search began in 2005 and continues.
