The AstDyS database can be searched in several ways. Please, use the menu on the left to choose the one that better fits your needs.

The form shown below is designed to find objects based on their designation. Just enter a string (e.g. "1998WZ1", "433" or "Eros") in the input area and, after pressing the enter key on your keyboard, the database matching entries will be displayed on the screen . In the search string you can include the question mark (?), to represent any single character, and the asterisk (*), to match any string of zero or more characters (e.g. "*eus" or "200?AA*"). Alternatively, you can always reach directly the home page of a particular asteroid by using the "Go to asteroid" tool, located at the top right of every page.
