Abstract: We present here the first integration of the search mechanism for solar system objects through ESASky. Based on the IMCCE Eproc software for ephemeris pre-computation, it allows fast discovery of photometry observations from ESA astronomical missions that potentially contain these objects within their field of view. In this first integration, the user can input a target name and retrieve on-the-fly the results for all the observations that match the input provided, that is, that contains within the exposure time frame the ephemerides of such objects. At the moment the search mechanism provides access to three major ESA missions, XMM-Newton, Hubble Space Telescope and Herschel Space Observatory, to be extended at a later stage to other relevant data assets.
