  • PDS-SBN: What are Small Bodies?
    being found every month When an asteroid is discovered it is given a temporary name consisting of six characters The first four characters are numbers identifying the year of the discovery the next character is a letter indicating the half month of the year in which the discovery occurred I is omitted and Z is unused and the last character is a second letter indicating sequentially the asteroids discovered in that half month I is omitted For example the asteroid 1995 CR would be the eighteenth asteroid discovered in the first half of February of 1995 If there are more than twenty five asteroid discoveries in a half month then the last character will start over with A but with a numerical subscript added on Should the asteroid be studied long enough for its orbit to be determined it will be given a permanent name and number The discoverer submits a name to the International Astronomical Union Minor Planet Center Commission 20 Near Earth Asteroids NEAs reside in the area near Earth around 1 0 AU and have perihelia less than or equal to 1 3 AU Three sub groups of NEAs have been defined The Aten group contains the innermost asteroids which have a semi major axis less than 1 0 AU and a perihelion distance greater than 0 983 AU The Apollo group asteroids have a semi major axis greater than 1 0 AU and perihelion distance less than 1 017 AU The Amor group asteroids have semi major axis greater than 1 0 AU and perihelion distance between 1 017 and 1 3 AU The Aten and Apollo asteroids cross the orbit of the Earth while the Amor asteroids do not reach Earth s orbit but do cross that of Mars Click for larger image Kirkwood Gap This figure shows the frequency of asteroids vs the semi major axis of asteroids Most Main Belt asteroids are located between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter 1 8 to 4 0 AU in a region known as the asteroid belt Within the belt are gaps where there are few or no asteroids at all These gaps are known as Kirkwood gaps and are the result of Jupiter s large gravitational pull on objects in these areas Objects which might have started in the Kirkwood gaps would have had an orbital period that was a simple fraction of Jupiter s period Such an asteroid would then have been accelerated by Jupiter s regular pull and in time thrown into an eccentric orbit in which it could collide with another object in the solar system The Trojan asteroids are two groups of asteroids located along the orbital path of Jupiter 60 degrees ahead and behind the planet These positions are called Lagrange points after the French theorist Joseph Louis Lagrange Lagrange suggested that when objects in the same plane form an equilateral triangle with the Sun they can share the same orbit without catching up to or colliding with each other
