Mike Foylan asteroid paper was created by eansbro

For those of you that have an interest in asteroids, I see that Mike Foylan
of Cherryvalley Observatory, Co. Meath has co-authored a paper in the
prestigious journal, The Minor Planet Bulletin (edition 42-3) regarding
observations and analysis of main belt object 4678 Ninian. A challenging
object due to its rotation period of 57 hours approximately.

Replied by Mike on topic Mike Foylan asteroid paper

Many thanks Eamonn; I am pleased you liked our submitted work to the MPB journal.

This was a collaboration endeavour with my Italian amateur astronomer friends, which proves that working progressively together can achieve great results indeed.

There would have been great difficulty if Cherryvalley Observatory alone were to take on the study of this particular asteroid, especially with our climate and time constraints based on one person working alone.

Best wishes and clear skies

After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say; "I WANT TO SEE THE MANAGER".
