Solar System Studies

Shows the recovery of Kuiper Belt Object MB99104
PRISM, detailed in MPEC 2004-A44.

The study of Kuiper Belt Objects to determine their properties, such as color indices, rotation periods, and shapes can give us clues about the formation of the solar system. This project needs PRISM's wide field of view to provide the same astrometric or photometric reference stars from night-to-night during opposition observations.
