Semimajor Axis

  1. An asteroid family is a group of minor planets that share similar orbital elements, such as semimajor axis, eccentricity, and orbital inclination. (Web site)

Asteroid Belts

  1. This region is termed the 'main belt' when contrasted with other concentrations of minor planets, since these may also be termed asteroid belts.

Asteroid Belt

First

  1. Some comets were first spotted as minor planets, and received a temporary designation accordingly before cometary activity was later discovered. (Web site)

Minor Planet

  1. If a minor planet produces coma it is called a comet (though conversely not all comets are classified as minor planets).

Picador

Objects

  1. In late August 2006, the IAU introduced the class small solar system bodies (SSSB) to include most objects previously classified as minor planets and comets.
