The asteroid lightcurve database
Abstract The compilation of a central database for asteroid lightcurve data, i.e., rotation rate and amplitude along with ancillary information such as diameter and albedo (known or estimated),Expand
Fast and Slow Rotation of Asteroids
Abstract We present an analysis of the distribution of asteroid spin rates vs. size. The existence of significant populations of both slow and fast rotators among asteroids smaller than D=40 km, andExpand
Absolute magnitudes of asteroids and a revision of asteroid albedo estimates from WISE thermal observations
Abstract We obtained estimates of the Johnson V absolute magnitudes ( H ) and slope parameters ( G ) for 583 main-belt and near-Earth asteroids observed at Ondřejov and Table Mountain ObservatoryExpand
Binary asteroid population 1. Angular momentum content
Abstract We compiled a list of estimated parameters of binary systems among asteroids from near-Earth to trojan orbits. In this paper, we describe the construction of the list, and we present resultsExpand
Keck observations of near-Earth asteroids in the thermal infrared
We present the results of thermal-infrared observations of 20 near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) obtained in the period March 2000–February 2002 with the 10-m Keck-I telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii. TheExpand
Radar Imaging of Binary Near-Earth Asteroid (66391) 1999 KW4
High-resolution radar images reveal near-Earth asteroid (66391) 1999 KW4 to be a binary system that is dominated by an equatorial ridge at the object's potential-energy minimum and has exotic physical and dynamical properties. Expand
Photometric Survey of Binary Near-Earth Asteroids
Abstract Photometric data on 17 binary near-Earth asteroids (15 of them are certain detections, two are probables) were analysed and characteristic properties of the near-Earth asteroid (NEA) binaryExpand
Asteroids Do Have Satellites

On the maximum amplitude of harmonics of an asteroid lightcurve
Abstract Most asteroid lightcurves are dominated by the second harmonic of the rotation period, caused by elongated shape. However, if the shape is not very elongate, other harmonics may dominate,Expand
On the shapes and spins of “rubble pile” asteroids
Abstract We examine the shape of a “rubble pile” asteroid as it slowly gains angular momentum by YORP torque, to the point where “landsliding” occurs. We find that it evolves to a “top” shape withExpand
