Generalities about asteroid discoveries :
Asteroids are little bodies orbiting the solar system. The largest is less than 1000km in size.

Several classes can be described, depending on where their orbit is located in the solar system.

A vast number of them orbit in a large belt located between the orbit of Mars and Jupiter, and are therefore called main belt asteroids.

A similar number orbit on each side of Jupiter, in two great "walls" located 60° of each side of Jupiter (called the trojan asteroids).

Some other orbit further than Neptune (called transneptunian objets). The first of these objects was discovered in 1992. Since they are very distant, they are usually very faint, and are difficult to observe with small telescopes.

There are several asteroids orbiting between Jupiter and Neptune. They are called Centaurs.

Finally, there are many objects orbiting in the inner solar system. Most interesting are the Earth Crossing Asteroids ( or Near Earth Objects, or Near Earth Asteroids, very often discovered as Fast Moving Objects, i.e. the ECA, NEO, NEA, FMO acronyms ). They are divided in 3 class : Aten (orbit inside the Earth's orbit ), Apollo (cross Earth orbit ) and Amor ( come near the Earth, but not quite... ). A real time diagram of the positions of the known NEOs can be found here.

You will be able to find much more informations about asteroids on the pages of the Minor Planet Center, whose page index is here.

The way asteroids are named is explained here. It is important to understand that it takes sometimes a long time to name an asteroid. For a single named asteroid, many, many others have been observed, which eventually will be named.


Asteroid discoveries at Caussols


The OCA Schmidt telescope started operating in 1978 and stopped in early 1999. Some amount of time has been spent specifically on asteroid searches, while some asteroids were discovered randomly while inspecting some plates taken for other programs.

580 asteroids have been discovered/numbered at Caussols as of November 2002.
The local history could be described as follow :

- The very first asteroids discovered with this telescope were discovered by Koichiro Tomita, a japanese astronomer from Tokyo observatory.
- In the following period ( 1978-1988), plates were regularly taken and visually scanned for asteroids. Usually, very little follow up was done ( a large number of so called "one night stands"), and the measurements were not all very good either. Despite a large effort, comparingly little asteroids came out of this period.
- In 1989-1990, very little time was available to observe asteroids. During this period however, the telescope was fitted with an automatic guider and a film holder. Technical Pan 6415 film became the main detector used on the telescope.

- Starting in 1992 a fruitful collaboration between Eric Elst from Brussels Observatory was started. A few films each lunations were taken, sent to Brussels, scanned and reduced there by Eric Elst.

- Starting in 1995, more and more time was taken to test the CCD camera.

- From the very end of 1996 to March 1999, ODAS, a collaboration between our observatory and the german space agency in Berlin used between 50 and 75% of the available observing time on the Schmidt telescope. To show the difference between OCA alone observations and OCA+DLR observations, ODAS IAU code was 910, whereas data from Caussols taken for the OCA alone (whether photographic or CCD ) is labelled 010.

- Since then, the telescope has been closed by the observatory.

The following graph shows the distribution of numbered asteroids per observer/program as of end of November 2002.
