Context. Large and publicly available astronomical archives open up new possibilities to search for and study Solar System objects. However, advanced techniques are required to deal with the large amounts of data. These unbiased surveys can be used to constrain the size distribution of minor bodies, which represents a piece of the puzzle for the formation models of the Solar System. Aims. We aim to identify asteroids in archival images from the ESA Hubble Space Telescope ( HST ) Science data…

The Dynamical Evolution of the Asteroid Belt

The asteroid belt is the leftover of the original planetesimal population in the inner solar system. However, currently the asteroids have orbits with all possible values of eccentricities and

Examples of unidentified trails in HST observations. The HST observation IDs, clockwise, from the top left, are: j8pv03020, jds47w010, j9bk75010, icphg2010, jdrz23010, and jcng06010
