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.

Matyáš Gryll of Gryllov (1551-1611), a professor at Prague University, took a particular interest in comets. In 1578 he published a survey of comets discovered until 1577, although he considered the comets to be miraculous signs from God. The name was suggested by J. Tichá.
