List of asteroids - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (425 words)
After discovery, asteroids generally receive a systematic name (such as "1989 AC"), then a number (such as 4179), and finally (optionally) a name (such as "Toutatis"), in that order.
Asteroids whose orbits are not (yet) precisely known are known by their systematic name (see provisional designation).
In extreme cases, such as "lost" asteroids, there may be a considerable mismatch: for instance the high-numbered 69230 Hermes was originally discovered in 1937, but was lost until 2003.
Asteroid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3166 words)
The term "asteroid", meaning star-like (from the Greek asteroeides, aster "star" + -eidos "form, shape"), was coined in 1802 by Sir William Herschel shortly after Olbers discovered the second one, 2 Pallas, in late March of the same year, to describe their star-like appearance; the other then-known planets all show discs, by comparison.
Asteroids are commonly classified into groups based on the characteristics of their orbits and on the details of the spectrum of sunlight they reflect.
The first true asteroid to be photographed in close-up was 951 Gaspra in 1991, followed in 1993 by 243 Ida and its moon Dactyl, all of which were imaged by the Galileo probe en route to Jupiter.
