Abstract

Photometric data were collected for several asteroids in order to obtain light curves. A variety of web-based astronomical research tools were utilized to identify candidate asteroids and their astronomical coordinates. Candidate asteroids were chosen to have relatively short rotational periods, and magnitude variations of 0.25 or greater. Using the 30 cm telescope on the roof of Lind Hall at Central Washington University, photometric data were obtained for the asteroid 382 Dodona for approximately five rotational periods over the course of four clear nights. Using Maxim DL, the images were analyzed to produce light curves. The light curves were consistent with the available literature on Dodona.
