2006 AM4

2007 Feb 1

We did CW, and 50-ns imaging of 2006 AM4. This delay-Doppler image has a vertical (range) resolution of 50 ns, or 7.5m. The horizontal (Doppler) resolution depends on the pole direction, which is not yet known. This image is from the first 8 seconds of data. The Doppler width shows that it is a rapid rotator (no more than 15 minutes), but does not give a good period estiamate alone.

Radar image of 2006 AM6 Using a period of 304.9s, I phased up a sequence of images and made a movie.
