Planets!
« on: May 07, 2004, 07:18:37 PM »

(8749) Beatles
Minor planet number 8749 has been named in honor of the 1960s British group, the Beatles.
The citation announcing the naming appeared on Minor Planet Circular 43042 (issued on 2001 July 5), from which the following is extracted with permission:


(8749) Beatles = 1998 GJ10                                                     
     Discovered 1998 Apr. 3 by J. Broughton at Reedy Creek Observatory.         
     The great 1960s British popular rock group from Liverpool comprised       
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They are         
unequalled in the rock era as prolific song writers and innovative recording   
artists with George Martin.                 







About (8749) Beatles
(8749) Beatles is in a 3.38-year elliptical orbit around the sun ranging in distance from 273.8 million km (at perihelion, closest point to the sun) to 400.7 million km (at aphelion, furthest point from the sun).
The previous perihelion passage occurred on 2004 Feb. 6.2 UT.

The orbit is inclined by 3.4 degrees to the ecliptic plane (the plane of the earth's orbit about the sun).

There is little information on the physical properties of (8749) Beatles. Even its diameter is uncertain--a range of 3 to 7 km is probable.

You will need a telescope to see this minor planet as its maximum brightness is some 1/5804 of the brightness of the faintest objects that can be seen with the unaided eye.

(4147) Lennon
Minor planet number 4147 has been named in honor of former Beatle John Lennon.
The citation announcing the naming appeared on Minor Planet Circular 16247 (issued on 1990 Apr. 10), from which the following is extracted with permission:


(4147) Lennon = 1983 AY                                                         
     Discovered 1983 Jan. 12 by B. A. Skiff at the Anderson Mesa Station of     
the Lowell Observatory.                                                         
     Named in memory of John Lennon (1940-1980), musician and ex-Beatle.       
With Paul McCartney, he wrote the early songs that helped make The Beatles     
the most popular group of their generation.  Perhaps the most famous Beatles   
album is Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which represents the       
Lennon-McCartney partnership at its most fertile and innovative.  From his     
solo recording career, the song that will probably best be remembered is       
'Imagine'.  Violently anti-war, John, and his wife Yoko, also made many         
public demonstrations of their desire for a peaceful world.         




About (4147) Lennon
(4147) Lennon is in a 3.63-year elliptical orbit around the sun ranging in distance from 325.0 million km (at perihelion, closest point to the sun) to 381.6 million km (at aphelion, furthest point from the sun).
The next perihelion passage will occur on 2005 Nov. 21.4 UT.

The orbit is inclined by 5.7 degrees to the ecliptic plane (the plane of the earth's orbit about the sun).

There is little information on the physical properties of (4147) Lennon. Even its diameter is uncertain--a range of 7 to 15 km is probable.

You will need a telescope to see this minor planet as its maximum brightness is some 1/4091 of the brightness of the faintest objects that can be seen with the unaided eye.

(4148) McCartney
Minor planet number 4148 has been named in honor of former Beatle Paul McCartney.
The citation announcing the naming appeared on Minor Planet Circular 16248 (issued on 1990 Apr. 10), from which the following is extracted with permission:


(4148) McCartney = 1983 NT                                                     
     Discovered 1983 July 11 by E. Bowell at the Anderson Mesa Station of       
the Lowell Observatory.                                                         
     Named in honor of Paul McCartney (1942-    ), musician and ex-Beatle.     
A talented composer, he was responsible for some of The Beatles' best loved     
songs--both 'Yesterday' and 'Michelle' have become classics of the popular     
repertoire, and have each been covered by several hundred artists.  Paul was   
instrumental in the setting up of the Apple Corps, a philanthropic             
organization that helped to launch the careers of several young musicians.     
Paul was the only member of The Beatles to continue regular live perform-       
ances after the group split up in 1970.  He is still a popular performer,       
and many of his solo recordings have topped the charts around the world.   


About (4148) McCartney
(4148) McCartney is in a 3.36-year elliptical orbit around the sun ranging in distance from 303.1 million km (at perihelion, closest point to the sun) to 368.5 million km (at aphelion, furthest point from the sun).
The next perihelion passage will occur on 2005 Dec. 22.2 UT.

The orbit is inclined by 5.2 degrees to the ecliptic plane (the plane of the earth's orbit about the sun).

There is little information on the physical properties of (4148) McCartney. Even its diameter is uncertain--a range of 7 to 16 km is probable.

You will need a telescope to see this minor planet as its maximum brightness is some 1/2488 of the brightness of the faintest objects that can be seen with the unaided eye.

(4149) Harrison
Minor planet number 4149 has been named in honor of former Beatle George Harrison.
The citation announcing the naming appeared on Minor Planet Circular 16248 (issued on 1990 Apr. 10), from which the following is extracted with permission:


(4149) Harrison = 1984 EZ                                                       
     Discovered 1984 Mar. 9 by B. A. Skiff at the Anderson Mesa Station of     
the Lowell Observatory.                                                         
     Named in honor of George Harrison (1943-    ), the quiet Beatle.           
Although overshadowed by John and Paul as composers while in The Beatles,       
George wrote several songs for the group, including 'While My Guitar Gently     
Weeps' and 'Something'.  Since The Beatles disbanded, George has undertaken     
many projects in addition to his solo recording career; notably his film       
company, HandMade Films.  In 1971 he organized a star-studded charity           
concert for the relief of famine in Bangladesh, and many of his songs have     
reflected his concern for the environment.     




About (4149) Harrison
(4149) Harrison is in a 4.35-year elliptical orbit around the sun ranging in distance from 347.9 million km (at perihelion, closest point to the sun) to 449.0 million km (at aphelion, furthest point from the sun).
The next perihelion passage will occur on 2006 June 28.4 UT.

The orbit is inclined by 12.9 degrees to the ecliptic plane (the plane of the earth's orbit about the sun).

There is little information on the physical properties of (4149) Harrison. Even its diameter is uncertain--a range of 9 to 21 km is probable.

You will need a telescope to see this minor planet as its maximum brightness is some 1/3147 of the brightness of the faintest objects that can be seen with the unaided eye.

the Lowell Observatory.                                                         
     Named in honor of Ringo Starr (Richard Starkey: 1940-    ), a             
Liverpudlian of lively personality and deadpan humor who occasionally sat       
in as drummer with The Beatles during their early days in Hamburg.  Ringo       
actually joined the group in 1962, after the original drummer, Pete Best,       
left.  Ringo's solo career has encompassed several albums and a variety of     
film roles.               



About (4150) Starr
(4150) Starr is in a 3.34-year elliptical orbit around the sun ranging in distance from 278.4 million km (at perihelion, closest point to the sun) to 389.7 million km (at aphelion, furthest point from the sun).
The next perihelion passage will occur on 2004 July 31.5 UT.

The orbit is inclined by 3.2 degrees to the ecliptic plane (the plane of the earth's orbit about the sun).

There is little information on the physical properties of (4150) Starr. Even its diameter is uncertain--a range of 7 to 16 km is probable.

You will need a telescope to see this minor planet as its maximum brightness is some 1/1476 of the brightness of the faintest objects that can be seen with the unaided eye.

The length of the day (i.e., the rotation period) is 6.8 hours.
