Category:Main-belt asteroids

If possible, asteroids should always be placed into one of the numerous sub-categories, in line with the category information given in the minor-planet catalog. Used sources: Small Body Data Ferret (Nesvorný) and AstDys (Milani and Knežević).

Examples[edit]

All asteroids should be sorted using a 0-padded, 6-digit sortkey based on their numerical designation. Otherwise, their provisional designation should be used. For example:

  • Family asteroid 1270 Datura would use [[Category:Datura asteroids|001270]].
  • Family asteroid without proper category, 3156 Ellington, would use [[Category:Main-belt asteroids|003156]].
  • Non-family asteroid 4881 Robmackintosh would use [[Category:Background asteroids|004881]].
  • Unnumbered asteroid 2004 BX159 (undetermined family) would simply use [[Category:Main-belt asteroids|#]].
