List Of Minor Planets
This is a list of numbered minor planets in the Solar System, in numerical order. As of April 2018[update] there are 757,626 minor planets of which 516,386 are numbered (secured discoveries). Every month, several thousand minor planets are newly numbered and added to this list (see index).[1][2] It is expected that the upcoming survey by the LSST
LSST
will discover another 5 million minor planets during the next ten years—a tenfold increase from current numbers.[3] While all 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;[4] and more than a trillion minor planets in the Kuiper belt. There are 21,264 named minor planets mostly for people and figures from mythology and fiction.[2] Approximately 96% of all numbered objects remain unnamed

Goodricke-Pigott Observatory
The Goodricke-Pigott Observatory
Goodricke-Pigott Observatory
is a private astronomical observatory in Tucson, Arizona.[1] It was formally dedicated on October 26, 1996, and observations began that evening with imaging of Comet Hale–Bopp. The observatory is named after John Goodricke
John Goodricke
and Edward Pigott, two late-eighteenth century astronomers who lived in York, England. Observatory telescopes[edit] The observatory opened with a Celestron C14, 0.35-meter aperture, f/11 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. This instrument has been upgraded with a new optics lens and a new clock drive, and an ST-4 star tracker was attached to the telescope's side to correct a two-minute, ten-arc second periodic motional error. There is another telescope dubbed MOTESS (Moving Object and Transient Event Search System) which is essentially a giant camera aimed at the sky. See also[edit]Roy A.
