The vast majority of these little worlds are in the Asteroid Belt and are also considered asteroids.

This table adopts the orbital criteria used by the, Diameters are calculated as a function of, An opposition is the time when a body is at its furthest apparent point from the Sun, and in this case is defined as the time when an asteroid is far enough from the Sun to be observed from the Earth. At least five of these bodies have a semi-major axis too large to be an outer main-belt asteroid, and an orbit too eccentric to be classified as a Jupiter trojan (JPL classifies these bodies simply as "asteroids", while the MPC, which never distinguishes between inner, outer and middle MBAs, classifies them as "main-belt asteroids"). (3708) 1974 FV1 and 543315 Asmakhammari are currently the lowest-numbered unnamed and highest-numbered named minor planets, respectively.[1]. The catalog consists of hundreds of pages, each containing 1000 minor planets. Additional data files are provided by the International Astronomical Union's Minor Planet Center. Each table stands for 100,000 minor planets, each cell for a specific partial list of 1,000 sequentially numbered bodies. Estimates are in italics and calculated from a magnitude-to-diameter conversion, using an assumed albedo derived from the body's orbital parameters or, if available, from a family-specific mean albedo (also see asteroid family table).[e]. [19] Mean diameters are rounded to two significant figures if smaller than 100 kilometers. It was last updated on 1997 June 18. After discovery, minor planets generally receive a provisional designation, e.g. The MPC may credit one or several astronomers, a survey or similar program, or even the observatory site with the discovery. Planet Shilora Edit. The following is a partial list of minor planets, running from minor-planet number 50001 through 51000, inclusive. In contrast to the Top 10 discoverers displayed in this articles, the MPC summarizes the total of discoveries somewhat differently, that is by a distinct group of discoverers. For an overview of all existing partial lists, see § Main index. Template:Related articles See also the related Category:Discoverers of minor planets. Especially towards the end of the twentieth century, large-scale automated asteroid discovery programs such as LINEAR have increased the pace of discoveries so much that the vast majority of minor planets will most likely never receive names. There are more than a thousand different minor-planet discoverers observing from a growing list of registered observatories. A minor-planet group is a population of minor planets that share broadly similar orbits. It is expected that the upcoming survey by the Vera C. Rubin Observatory (LSST) will discover another 5 million minor planets during the next ten years—a tenfold increase from current numbers. The provisional designation for all objects is an uncommon survey designation.

In most cases, this is about 4 to 6 months a year. This is a list of named minor planets in an alphabetical, case-insensitive order. Only after it was rediscovered could its orbit be established and a number assigned. The following is a partial list of minor planets, running from minor-planet number 3001 through 4000, inclusive.A detailed description of the table's columns and used data sources are given on the main page. As of August 2016 there are 474,120 numbered minor planets, and 243,648 unnumbered. [5] While all main-belt asteroids with a diameter above 10 kilometers have already been discovered, there might be as many as 10 trillion 1-meter-sized asteroids or larger out to the orbit of Jupiter; and more than a trillion minor planets in the Kuiper belt of which hundreds are likely dwarf planets. 1. The 2000 recovery of 719 Albert, which had been lost for nearly 89 years, eliminated the last numbered lost asteroid. The main index provides an overview of the entire minor-planet catalog. Grey minor planets have no article and redirect to the list of minor planets instead (see List of minor planets § Main index). For example, bodies discovered in the Palomar–Leiden Survey are directly credited to the program's principal investigators. Observatories, telescopes and surveys that report astrometric observations of small Solar System bodies to the MPC receive a numeric or alphanumeric code such as 675 for the Palomar Observatory, or I41 for the Palomar Transient Factory, a dedicated survey that was conducted at Palomar Observatory during 2009–2012. Toggle navigation. Among these, a small group of U.S. programs and surveys actually account for most of all discoveries made so far (see pie chart). Planet Cripelda is an impoverished planet that is dictated by a bloodthirsty guardian. Please add asteroid articles under correct category, not here. A detailed description of the table's columns and used data sources are given on the main page. Minor planets are extremely common with over 400,000 registered and thousands more found each month.
