SEARCH BY CITATION

Abstract

The long lost minor planet (843) Nicolaia was recovered with the 1 m ESO Schmidt telescope after 65 years. This was due to the careful examination of the old 1916 plates and the wellbalanced computation of search ephemerides. An improved orbit based on 19 right ascensions and 20 declinations from the two apparitions 1916 and 1981 is given.
