Open Starry Night, go to Preferences ---> Start Up
Under maximum number of asteroids you can change it too "99999"
Note, you will need a fast computer to read in all the asteroids. FAST. Otherwise your computer will choke.

Unpack the .gz file. Rename the "astorb.dat" file as "Asteroids.txt"

- From the Finder menu bar navigate to Go > Go to Folder.
- Type: ~/Library
- In Library go to Application Support ---> Simulation Curriculum ---> Starry Night Prefs ---> Sky Data <--- put the Asteroids.txt file in here.
If you get it to work, you'll have something that looks like this:
