Properties of the Trans-Neptunian Belt: Statistics from the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope Survey
We present the results of a wide-field survey designed to measure the size, inclination, and radial distributions of Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs). The survey found 86 KBOs in 73 deg2 observed toExpand

Crystalline water ice on the Kuiper belt object (50000) Quaoar
The Kuiper belt is a disk-like structure consisting of solid bodies orbiting the Sun beyond Neptune. It is the source of the short-period comets and the likely repository of the Solar System's mostExpand

Ten new BL Lacertae objects discovered by an efficient X-ray/radio/optical technique
The discovery of 13 serendipitous BL Lac objects in the Einstein IPC Slew Survey by means of x ray/radio vs. x ray/optical color-color diagrams and confirmation by optical spectroscopy are reported.Expand

Colors and Spectra of Kuiper Belt Objects
We present new measurements of the optical colors of Kuiper belt objects, principally from the Keck 10 m telescope. The measurements confirm the existence of a wide spread in the B-V, V-R, and R-IExpand

Large Kuiper Belt Objects: The Mauna Kea 8K CCD Survey
We describe a large-area ecliptic survey designed to assess the sky-plane surface density of bright Kuiper Belt objects. We used an 8192 ) 8192 pixel CCD mosaic to image 51.5 deg2 to a 50% detectionExpand

Discovery of the candidate Kuiper belt object 1992 QB1
THE apparent emptiness of the outer Solar System has been a long-standing puzzle for astronomers, as it contrasts markedly with the abundance of asteroids and short-period comets found closer to theExpand

Accretion in the Early Kuiper Belt II. Fragmentation
We describe new planetesimal accretion calculations in the Kuiper Belt that include fragmentation and velocity evolution. All models produce two power law cumulative size distributions, NC ∝ r −2.5Expand

ACCRETION IN THE EARLY KUIPER BELT. I. COAGULATION AND VELOCITY EVOLUTION
We describe planetesimal accretion calculations in the Kuiper Belt. Our evolution code simulates planetesimal growth in a single annulus and includes velocity evolution but not fragmentation. TestExpand

Interstellar Interloper 1I/2017 U1: Observations from the NOT and WIYN Telescopes
We present observations of the interstellar interloper 1I/2017 U1 ('Oumuamua) taken during its 2017 October flyby of Earth. The optical colors B – V = 0.70 ± 0.06, V – R = 0.45 ± 0.05, overlap thoseExpand
