Asteroid: 2001 EB

Predicted positions for CFHT 3.6m - telescope CCD images with length of trail in arcsecs. The predictor generates ephemerides for start, midth, and end of trail, along with the predicted magnitude.

The trails on CFHT - images were observed by M. Holman and measured by
Dr. Christian Veillet. Using these measurements, the 1954 prediction
habe been calculated much more accurately.
