Identification and Calculation of the Three-Dimensional Orbit of an Asteroid
Image taken by ARI telescope and Astrometrica software used to detect asteroids. The object in the red circle has moved in the three images. The right ascension, declination, and visible magnitude are shown. The fit to the point spread function is shown in the inset together with the signal-to-noise ratio.
Three-dimensional orbit of the asteroid (red circle) and the Earth (blue circle) around the Sun (center red circle). The closest approach of the asteroid to the Earth took place on Sept. 29, 2007 (red circles on orbits), and the farthest distance of the asteroid from the Earth took place on Aug. 9, 2009 (blue circles on orbits).
