  • The following is a list of current records for Apollo asteroids.
  • It was the third Apollo asteroid to be discovered.
  • It is classified as an Apollo asteroid because it is a near-Earth asteroid with a semi-major axis larger than Earth's.
  • The intended target of the program was the Apollo asteroid but F. Char identified as a streak near the edge of the observed field.
  • It was in the Apollo asteroid class in an Earth-crossing orbit that would make a subsequent close approach to Earth in August 1997.
  • He also discovered numerous asteroids, including the Apollo asteroid 1865 Cerberus.
  • Upon discovery, it was classified as an Apollo asteroid but also an Earth crosser by the Minor Planet Center.
  • The Apollo asteroid is one of the candidates proposed for the role of the parent body of the Chelyabinsk superbolide.
  • Adonis was the second Apollo asteroid to be discovered (after 1862 Apollo itself).
  • Outer Earth-grazer asteroids are split between Amor and Apollo asteroids, depending on the definition used.
  • Those Earth-crossers whose semi-major axes are smaller than Earth's are Aten asteroids; the remaining ones are Apollo asteroids.
  • In this respect the Apollo asteroid 1990 MU is somewhat unusual.
  • She has discovered a number of asteroids, including the Apollo asteroid 2212 Hephaistos and 3147 Samantha.
  • Most potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) are either Aten asteroids or Apollo asteroids, and therefore cross the orbit of Earth.
  • It is categorized as an Apollo asteroid (because its semi-major axis is greater than that of the Earth's and its perihelion is less than 1.017 AU).
  • Multiple videos of the Chelyabinsk superbolide, particularly from dashboard cameras and traffic cameras, helped to establish the meteor's provenance as an Apollo asteroid.
  • He also discovered a number of asteroids, including the Apollo asteroid 2201 Oljato and the Amor asteroid 2061 Anza.
  • It is the namesake of the Apollo asteroids, and the first one discovered, although because it was lost for a time its asteroid number (1862) is higher than that of some other Apollo asteroids such as 1566 Icarus.
  • Midas is an Apollo asteroid, a Venus and Mars-crosser asteroid with an orbital period of 2 years, 134 days.
  • This refers to the report Project Icarus, originally a student project at M.I.T. for a systems engineering class by Professor Paul Sandorff in the Spring of 1967 to design a way to deflect an Apollo asteroid, 1566 Icarus, found to be on a collision course with planet Earth.
