Use mouse to "roll-over" image to see asteroid designations

 Using the Sky6 and the "complete" minor planet database from the MPC, all cataloged asteroids passing through this area at the mid-times of exposures on 27May06 (02:45PST in RED) and 29May06 (0145PST in GREEN) are depicted.  The ones on the 1st night (27May06) are RGB trails while those shot on 29May06 are b&w trails from the composite 7x7 (49) min bin1x1 luminosity exposure. The left-hand part of the label gives the asteroid designation, while the right side number, separated with a comma,  is the object's magnitude.
