1998 WT48 Light Curve

This was a collaborative effort. Petr Pravec requested observations from other observers of this near earth asteroid as it passed close by us on December 17, 2001. James McGaha at Grasslands Observatory managed to collect 500 images with his Ap8P and LX200 30 cm at F12. These were analyzed using MPO Canopus and a light curve assembled from the segments. This was such a fast moving object that the asteroid moved through over 15 fields during the 500 images. The light curve plotted supported Petr's earlier period determination.
