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.

Karl Hornstein (1824-1882), the eighth director of the Klementinum observatory in Prague, studied the orbits of minor planets, including the irregularities in their distribution that were later called the Kirkwood gaps. The name was suggested by J. Tichá and M. Šolc.
