Two things: (a) it has -labels- on the parameters.. so they're immediately usable in the Autostar (unlike Harvard's where we have to remember what "q" and "M" mean). (b) you can edit that URL to locate other "in the news" asteroids so the above (for 2002 NT 7 ) can have the "NT7" changed to "NY40" yielding: http://newton.dm.unipi.it/cgi-bin/neodys/neoibo?objects:2002NY40;main which was a recent topic of mention here in the Alerts... (i love URLs) have fun --dick
