22978 Nyrola - 23.3.2018 at 21.12 Hankasalmi, Murtoinen Observation number 71922

Visibility II / V

Arto Oksanen, Jyväskylän Sirius

A small planet (22978) found at the Sirius Nyrölä Observatory in Jyväskylä in 1999, Nyrölä is visible in the evening sky in the constellation of the Little Dog. The brightness is known in 18 magnitudes, so even with a large telescope, it is challenging to photograph it. I took three sets of 5x60s where the motion of the little planet is clearly visible. I measured the place from the middle stack and reported to the Minor Planet Center. You can find the exact calculated place. Astrometry: 22978 C C2018 03 23.79989 07 29 25.89 +07 42 51.8 18.4 R A91
