Searching database of minor planet names
The catalog of asteroids discovered at Klet can be searched in two ways. In the first one, pick a starting letter of asteroid's name from the listed alphabet. In the second way, start writing an expression to search (diacritics is allowed), and after at least three letters are typed, the results are automatically listed. The search can also be performed only on asteroid names, catalogue numbers, date of discovery or names of the discoverers.
Discovered by 6.02.1998 by J. Tichá a M. Tichý on Klet observatory
MPC 43047 (5.07.2001)
Nicholas Winton (b. 1909), a British stockbroker, managed to save more than 600 Czech Jewish children from occupied Czechoslovakia by bringing them to Great Britain in 1938-1939. This is a great example of resistance and courage in the atmosphere of a totalitarian regime.
The image of minor planet (19384) Winton was taken on 2000 December 5 using 0.57-m f/5.2 reflector of the Klet' Observatory equipped with a CCD camera SBIG ST-8 and is 90 second exposure. Minor planet is arrowed.
