The links on this page take you to different pages for planning your asteroid observations. They vary in the type and amount of information available.
Asteroid Lightcurve Database (LCDB) Search
This takes you directly to the LCDB Query form where you can search for lightcurve data on one or more asteroids.
The ALCDEF site allows you to upload and/or download asteroid time-series photomery.
The Ephemeris Generator form allows you to find asteroids reaching brightest during a given month for the current year, the year before, and the next four years (e.g., if it is 2021, data from 2020-2024 are available). The search can be filtered on, among other things, limiting magnitude and declination range. Additional filters allow you to restrict the results to those objects with a certain quality rating (U) in the LCDB (if included)
One Asteroid Lookup
Use the One Asteroid Info form when you want all available data for one and only one asteroid.
The Family Ephemeris form is for those who like to work some of the common asteroid families or groups, such as the Floras, Jupiter Trojans, and NEAs. The input form allows you select from a list of common families, set your longitude and latitude, and default UT, along with a filter for magnitude, declination, and solar elongation.
