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.

Baron Arthur Kraus (1854-1930) was a man of wide interests, including new technology, sports and aviation. He privately funded the Public Observatory at Pardubice in 1912, made observations of sunspots and mainly served as a sedulous popularizer of astronomy. The name was suggested by J. Tichá.
