Models of Twenty Asteroids from Photometric Data

Abstract

We present models of the shapes and rotational states of selected asteroids based on data from the Uppsala Asteroid Photometric Catalogue. The results show a wide variety of shapes especially among the smaller asteroids. Few asteroids show clear signs of significant albedo variegation. Most rotational states are in reasonable agreement with those previously estimated with rough models. We discuss some practical aspects of photometric analysis and present a simple way of building one-spot models.
