A little help?
Posted 12 March 2013 - 02:07 AM
the location of the object was: RA= 12h 32min 04sec and DEC = +12 07' 52". date was 2013 03 12.27 I managed to get these numbers input into the NEO Checker correctly but it turned up nothing. I'll post up an image shortly...
Any help would be appreciated.

Having a Starry Night or Cartes du Ciel program with up to date asteroid files will help identify asteroids before going to the MPC. I use Cartes du Ciel because it's free and has access to all asteroids ever discovered which most programs don't. They just like close approach, opposition and such. Not the whole data base.

The MPC may well not have spit out 1078 Mentha as a candidate because it's not a NEO...
