Minor Planets

The observation of minor planets is one of the main activities of my observatory.
In Switzerland less than ten amateurs are involved in the astrometry of minor planets. In the 60’s there was the astronomer Paul Wild. In Zimmerwald, during his photographic search of supernovae, he discovered 97 minor planets and 7 comets.
Here you can find some statistics of the positional measurements done in Gnosca. A list of the measurements taken on Near Earth Objects is here. This list counts 1521 positions (updated Jan 2011).
