The Splitting of Double-component Active Asteroid P/2016 J1 (PANSTARRS)
We present deep imaging observations, orbital dynamics, and dust-tail model analyses of the double-component asteroid P/2016 J1 (J1-A and J1-B). The observations were acquired at the Gran TelescopioExpand

Abstract Our knowledge of main-belt comets (MBCs), which exhibit comet-like activity likely due to the sublimation of volatile ices, yet orbit in the main asteroid belt, has increased greatly sinceExpand
Intermittent Dust Mass Loss from Activated Asteroid P/2013 P5 (PANSTARRS)
We present observations and models of the dust environment of activated asteroid P/2013 P5 (PANSTARRS). The object displayed a complex morphology during the observations, with the presence ofExpand
X-shooter search for outgassing from Main Belt Comet P/2012 T1 (Pan-STARRS)
Main Belt Comets are a recently identified population of minor bodies with stable asteroid-like orbits but cometary appearances. Sublimation of water ice is the most likely mechanism for theirExpand
Nucleus of active asteroid 358P/Pan-STARRS (P/2012 T1)
The dust emission from active asteroids is likely driven by collisions, fast rotation, sublimation of embedded ice, and combinations of these. Characterising these processes leads to a betterExpand
Comet 66P/du Toit: not a near Earth main belt comet
Main belt comets (MBCs) are a peculiar class of volatile-containing objects with comet-like morphology and asteroid-like orbits. However, MBCs are challenging targets to study remotely due to theirExpand
The reactivation of main-belt Comet 324P/La Sagra (P/2010 R2)
We present observations using the Baade Magellan and Canada-France-Hawaii telescopes showing that main-belt comet 324P/La Sagra, formerly known as P/2010 R2, has become active again for the firstExpand
The Main Belt Comets and ice in the Solar System
We review the evidence for buried ice in the asteroid belt; specifically the questions around the so-called Main Belt Comets (MBCs). We summarise the evidence for water throughout the Solar System,Expand
The nucleus of main-belt Comet P/2010 R2 (La Sagra)
Abstract We present recent observations of main-belt comet P/2010 R2 (La Sagra) obtained using the Gemini North telescope on five nights in late 2011 and early 2013 during portions of the object’sExpand
The Reactivation and Nucleus Characterization of Main-Belt Comet 358P/PANSTARRS (P/2012 T1)
We present observations of main-belt comet 358P/PANSTARRS (P/2012 T1) obtained using the Gemini South telescope from 2017 July to 2017 December, as the object approached perihelion for the first timeExpand

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. Expand
