THE assembly The IAU Symposium a hundred and sixty ASTEROIDS COMETS METEORS 1999 has been held at Villa Carlotta in Belgirate, at the shore of Lago Maggiore (Italy), from June 14 to June 18, 1993. it's been equipped by means of the Astronomical Observatory of Torino and by way of the Lunar and Planetary Institute of Houston. it's been a truly huge assembly, with 323 registered members from 38 international locations. The medical software incorporated 29 invited experiences, 106 oral communications, and 215 posters. the themes lined integrated all of the facets of the experiences of the minor our bodies of the sunlight method, together with asteroids, comets, meteors, meteorites, interplanetary dirt, with specific specialize in the interrelationships among those. The assembly was once established as follows. five morning plenary classes were dedicated to invited studies on: (1) seek courses (2) populations of small our bodies (3) dynamics (4) actual observations and modelling (5) foundation and evolution. afternoon plenary classes were dedicated to house missions to small our bodies and to interrelationships among the various populations. The afternoon parallel classes were dedicated to: dynamics of comets; Toutatis, Ida, Gaspra; actual techniques in cometary comae and tails; meteorites; the cosmogonic message from cometary nuclei; physics of asteroids; the interplanetary dirt advanced; comet nuclei; meteors; composition and fabric homes of comets; dynamics of asteroids.

Sample text

If one wishes to accommodate this problem by increasing the latitude coverage still further, it does become necessary to extend the longitude coverage-into the transition region and perhaps even beyond. Extension of "professional" comet searches into the realm of the amateur is probably inevitable. It is rather curious, however, that photographic forays into this field have not been particularly productive. Non-apocryphal information on negative searches is difficult to assimilate, but it is not impossible that intrinsically faint long-period comets simply do not exist.

Scans are then 2048 pixels high in declination and an arbitrary number of rows long in right ascension. A survey region consists of three scans ("passes") of the same length at the same location on the sky. Survey regions are usually selected near the opposition point and are normally done sequentially or by alternating passes from different survey regions. The resulting interval between passes is typically between thirty minutes and one hour. The field of view is ",32 arcminutes tall in declination and the sidereal drift time across the CCD is 147 seconds at the equator and varies with the secant of the declination.
