Astrometry and photometry of asteroids from the UkrVO database of astroplates

Abstract We present the developed methods of digitization, image processing, reduction, and scientific data mining with the latest reference catalogs, which allowed us to obtain a good positional and

An Observational Upper Limit on the Interstellar Number Density of Asteroids and Comets

We derived 90% confidence limits (CLs) on the interstellar number density ( ) of interstellar objects (ISOs; comets and asteroids) as a function of the slope of their size–frequency distribution

The AKARI IRC asteroid flux catalogue: updated diameters and albedos

The AKARI IRC All-sky survey provided more than twenty thousand thermal infrared observations of over five thousand asteroids. Diameters and albedos were obtained by fitting an empirically calibrated

Analysis of Four-band WISE Observations of Asteroids

We analyzed 82,548 carefully curated observations of 4420 asteroids with Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) four-band data to produce estimates of diameters and infrared emissivities. We also

The determination of asteroid H and G phase function parameters using Gaia DR2

The Gaia mission will provide the scientific community with high-quality observations of asteroids of all categories. The second release of Gaia data (DR2) was published in 2018 and consisted of 22

Sizes and albedos of Mars-crossing asteroids from WISE/NEOWISE data

Context. Mars-crossing asteroids (MCs) are a dynamically unstable group between the main belt and the near-Earth populations. Characterising the physical properties of a large sample of MCs can help

High-fidelity Simulations of the Near-Earth Object Search Performance of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope

We perform high-fidelity simulations of a wide-field telescopic survey searching for Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) larger than 140 m, focusing on the observation and detection model, as well as detection

The ATLAS All-Sky Stellar Reference Catalog

The Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) observes most of the sky every night in search of dangerous asteroids. Its data are also used to search for photometric variability, where

Comparison of Positions and Magnitudes of Asteroids Observed in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey with Those Predicted for Known Asteroids

We positionally correlate known asteroids with a sample of ∼18,000 asteroids detected by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We find 2641 unique matches, which represent the largest sample of

PHOTOMETRIC CALIBRATION OF THE FIRST 1.5 YEARS OF THE PAN-STARRS1 SURVEY

We present a precise photometric calibration of the first 1.5 years of science imaging from the Pan-STARRS1 survey (PS1), an ongoing optical survey of the entire sky north of declination −30° in five

THE Pan-STARRS1 PHOTOMETRIC SYSTEM

The Pan-STARRS1 survey is collecting multi-epoch, multi-color observations of the sky north of declination −30° to unprecedented depths. These data are being photometrically and astrometrically

ASTEROID LIGHT CURVES FROM THE PALOMAR TRANSIENT FACTORY SURVEY: ROTATION PERIODS AND PHASE FUNCTIONS FROM SPARSE PHOTOMETRY

We fit 54,296 sparsely sampled asteroid light curves in the Palomar Transient Factory survey to a combined rotation plus phase-function model. Each light curve consists of 20 or more observations

THE PAN-STARRS 1 PHOTOMETRIC REFERENCE LADDER, RELEASE 12.01

As of 2012 January 21, the Pan-STARRS 1 3π Survey has observed the 3/4 of the sky visible from Hawaii with a minimum of 2 and mean of 7.6 observations in five filters, gP1, rP1, iP1, zP1, yP1. Now at

WISE/NEOWISE OBSERVATIONS OF THE HILDA POPULATION: PRELIMINARY RESULTS

We present the preliminary analysis of 1023 known asteroids in the Hilda region of the solar system observed by the NEOWISE component of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). The sizes of

WISE/NEOWISE OBSERVATIONS OF THE JOVIAN TROJAN POPULATION: TAXONOMY

We present updated/new thermal model fits for 478 Jovian Trojan asteroids observed with the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). Using the fact that the two shortest bands used by WISE,
