421 Zahringia Light Curve

This minor planet was discovered September 7, 1896 by M. Wolf at Heidelberg. It was named for a family of Grand Dukes of Baden. With H = 11.78, this asteroid is probably 12 - 27 Km. in diameter.

Several nights of data collected on this object were so noisy as to be unusable. From the useful nights of data a total of 264 observations were made on August 17, 26, and 29 , September 13 and 22 and October 17, 2001, but not covering the entire lightcurve. In addition data was provided by Robert Stephens and Brian Warner, but not used in the final solution. The period of the lightcurve was determined to be15.5h +/-0.1h and the amplitude 0.15m +/-0.32m. This is a relatively weak solution and requires further study.
