Introduction: Asteroids are generally too small to visually distinguish the shape through Earth-bound observations. Fortunately, light curve inversion of disc-integrated photometry has been shown to be a viable source to obtain information about the shape and spin axis of asteroids [1],[2]. In early 2007 two target candidates for an initial shape modeling study at the Egan Observatory at Florida Gulf Coast University were selected. Minor Planets 242 Kriemhild and 287 Nephthys were chosen… CONTINUE READING
