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.

1995 EC
Discovered by 1.03.1995 by Z. Moravec on Klet observatory
MPC 34344 (2.04.1999)

Named for a literary character created by Jaroslav Hašek, Czech writer and humorist (1883-1923). His "good soldier" Josef Švejk is devoted to the disintegrating Austrian-Hungarian monarchy regime, but by his simplicity (or perhaps his ingenuity) he helps to reveal its flaws.
