The peculiar object P/2010 A2 was discovered in January 2010 and given a cometary designation because of the presence of a trail of material, although there was no central condensation or coma. The appearance of this object, in an asteroidal orbit (small eccentricity and inclination) in the inner main asteroid belt attracted attention as a potential new member of the recently recognized class of main-belt comets. If confirmed, this new object would expand the range in heliocentric distance over… 
A recent disruption of the main-belt asteroid P/2010 A2
TLDR
Observations of P/2010 A2, a previously unknown inner-belt asteroid with a peculiar, comet-like morphology, are reported, concluding that it is most probably the remnant of a recent asteroidal disruption in February/March 2009, evolving slowly under the action of solar radiation pressure.
P/2010 A2 LINEAR - II. Dynamical dust modelling
P/2010 A2 is an object on an asteroidal orbit that was observed to have an extended tail or debris trail in January 2010. In thi s work, we fit the outburst of P /2010 A2 with a conical burst model,
P/2010 A2 LINEAR - I. An impact in the asteroid main belt
Comet P/2010 A2 LINEAR is an object on an asteroidal orbit within the inner Main Belt, therefore a good candidate for membership with the Main Belt Comet family. It was observed with several
LARGE PARTICLES IN ACTIVE ASTEROID P/2010 A2*
The previously unknown asteroid P/2010 A2 rose to prominence in 2010 by forming a transient, comet-like tail consisting of ejected dust. The observed dust production was interpreted as the result of
Anisotropic Ejection from Active Asteroid P/2010 A2: An Implication of Impact Shattering on an Asteroid
We revisited a mass ejection phenomenon that occurred in asteroid P/2010 A2 in terms of the dynamical properties of the dust particles and large fragments. We constructed a model assuming anisotropic
Dynamics of Large Fragments in the Tail of Active Asteroid P/2010 A2
We examine the motions of large fragments at the head of the dust tail of the active asteroid P/2010 A2. In previous work, we showed that these fragments were ejected from the primary nucleus in
FAST ROTATION AND TRAILING FRAGMENTS OF THE ACTIVE ASTEROID P/2012 F5 (GIBBS)*
While having a comet-like appearance, P/2012 F5 (Gibbs) has an orbit native to the Main Asteroid Belt, and physically is a km-sized asteroid which recently (mid 2011) experienced an impulsive mass
New Observational Evidence of Active Asteroid P/2010 A2: Slow Rotation of the Largest Fragment
We report new observations of the active asteroid P/2010 A2 taken when it made its closest approach to the Earth (1.06 au in 2017 January) after its first discovery in 2010. Despite a crucial role of
Multiband Optical Observation of The P/2010 A2 Dust Tail
An inner main-belt asteroid, P/2010 A2, was discovered on 2010 January 6. Based on its orbital elements, it is considered that the asteroid belongs to the Flora collisional family, where S-type
P/2006 VW139: a main-belt comet born in an asteroid collision?
In this paper, we apply different methods to examine the possibility that a small group of 24 asteroids dynamically linked to a main-belt comet P/2006 VW139, recently discovered by the Pan-STARRS1

A recent disruption of the main-belt asteroid P/2010 A2
TLDR
Observations of P/2010 A2, a previously unknown inner-belt asteroid with a peculiar, comet-like morphology, are reported, concluding that it is most probably the remnant of a recent asteroidal disruption in February/March 2009, evolving slowly under the action of solar radiation pressure.
The recent breakup of an asteroid in the main-belt region
TLDR
The discovery of a family of asteroids that formed in a disruption event only 5.8 ± 0.2 million years ago, and which has subsequently undergone little dynamical and collisional evolution, is reported.
Candidates for Asteroid Dust Trails
The contribution of different sources to the circumsolar dust cloud (known as the zodiacal cloud) can be deduced from diagnostic observations. We used the Spitzer Space Telescope to observe the
Collisional model of asteroids and their debris
A model for colliding objects in the asteroidal belt is formulated. An integro-differential equation describing the evolution of a system of particles undergoing inelastic collisions and
The flux of small near-Earth objects colliding with the Earth
TLDR
Satellite records of bolide detonations in the atmosphere over the past 8.5 years are reported and it is found that the flux of objects in the 1–10-m size range has the same power-law distribution as bodies with diameters >50 m.
The cratering history of asteroid ( 21 )
The European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft passed by the main belt asteroid (21) Lutetia on 10th July 2010. With its 100 km size, Lutetia is one of the largest asteroids ever imaged by a
E-Type Asteroid (2867) Steins as Imaged by OSIRIS on Board Rosetta
TLDR
The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission encountered the main-belt asteroid Steins while on its way to rendezvous with comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and images taken with the OSIRIS cameras constitute direct evidence for the YORP effect on a main- belt asteroid.
A Population of Comets in the Main Asteroid Belt
TLDR
Optical data is presented showing the existence of a population of comets originating in a third reservoir: the main asteroid belt, which lends new support to the idea that main-belt objects could be a major source of terrestrial water.
