959 Arne Light Curve

This minor planet was discovered 1921 September 30 by K. Reinmuth at Heidelberg. It was named named in honor of a son of B. Asplind. With H = 10.2, this asteroid is probably 23 -57 Km in diameter.

Twelve different sessions were conducted on this object, but only data from six nights were useful. A total of 249 observations were acquired on November 11, December 7, 8, 18, 21, and 20, 2001 yielding full coverage of the lightcurve. The period of (959) Arne was found to be 8.60h +/-0.1h and the amplitude 0.35m +/-0.02m.
