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.

Jakub Krčín of Jelčany (1535-1604) became famous for designing and making ponds in South Bohemia. Notably he constructed Rožmberk, the largest pond in Bohemia, as well as a system of canals and drains. Many of his waterworks are still in operation for breeding fish and for protection from floods.
