Main belt binary asteroidal systems with circular mutual orbits

EXTREME AO OBSERVATIONS OF TWO TRIPLE ASTEROID SYSTEMS WITH SPHERE

We present the discovery of a new satellite of asteroid (130) Elektra—S/2014 (130) 1—in differential imaging and in integral field spectroscopy data over multiple epochs obtained with

Determination of binary asteroid orbits with a genetic-based algorithm

Aims: Over the past decade, discoveries of multiple and binary asteroid systems have played a significant role in our general understanding of small solar system bodies. Direct observations of

New insights on the binary asteroid 121 Hermione

Preimpact Mutual Orbit of the DART Target Binary Asteroid (65803) Didymos Derived from Observations of Mutual Events in 2003–2021

We modeled photometric observations of mutual events (eclipses and occultations) between the components of the binary near-Earth asteroid (65803) Didymos, the target of the Double Asteroid

(3749) BALAM: A VERY YOUNG MULTIPLE ASTEROID SYSTEM

Binaries and multiple systems among small bodies in the solar system have received wide attention over the past decade. This is because their observations provide a wealth of data otherwise

Discovery of a moon orbiting the asteroid 45 Eugenia

Evidence for asteroidal satellites (moons) has been sought for decades, because the relative frequency of such satellites will bear on the collisional history of the asteroid belt and the Solar

The binary Kuiper-belt object 1998 WW31

It is reported that the Kuiper-belt object 1998 WW31 is binary with a highly eccentric orbit (eccentricity e ≈ 0.8) and a long period (about 570 days), very different from the Pluto/Charon system, which was hitherto the only previously known binary in theKuiper belt.

Orbit Determination of Binary Asteroids

In addition to the detection of an asteroid moon or a binary asteroid, the knowledge of the satellite’s true orbit is of high importance to derive fundamental physical parameters of the binary system

Discovery of the triple asteroidal system 87 Sylvia

The unambiguous detection of a triple asteroidal system in the main belt, composed of a 280-km primary (87 Sylvia) and two small moonlets orbiting at 710 and 1,360 km, which was most probably formed through the disruptive collision of a parent asteroid.

Binary Asteroids in the Near-Earth Object Population

This system and other binary near-Earth asteroids have spheroidal primaries spinning near the breakup point for strengthless bodies, suggesting that the binaries formed by spin-up and fission, probably as a result of tidal disruption during close planetary encounters, may be binary systems.
