Asteroid Lightcurve Research at PDO

The primary work at the Palmer Divide Observatory is to determine the lightcurve parameters of as many asteroids as possible. Special concentration is giving to the Hungaria group, which are inner main belt asteroids with high albedo. This allows working, presumably, smaller asteroids and so extending the statistical sampling  to include a wider range of asteroid sizes.

Generally, a given asteroid is worked only until a reasonably accurate set of parameters (0.005-0.01h and 0.02m) is determined for a given lunation. On occasion, more detailed work is performed at the request of other researches who are attempting to refine or remove ambiguity from previously established parameters.
