Asteroid: 2001 KX76

Predicted positions for ESO 2.2m WFI CCD frames. The predictor generates ephemerides and the predicted magnitude.

ESOWFI:
     K01K76X   2000 07 03.18702 16 08 30.69 -18 33 15.2 ESOWFI   19.3        809


Based on the improved orbit, determined from the two positions found, a new
search predicted detections on the following images:
