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.

Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527?-1593) was an Italian Mannerist painter whose grotesque, almost surrealist compositions of fruits, vegetables and other objects were arranged to resemble human portraits. He became a favorite court painter of the Hapsburg emperor Rudolph II in Prague. The name was suggested by J. Tichá.
