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.

Thomas Harriot (1560-1621) is recognized as having made the first use of a telescope to record a celestial object with his drawing of the moon from Syon House, near London, on 1609 July 26 (O.S.), several months before Galileo. Better known as a mathematician, Harriot devised the < and > symbols.
