[64.04] A Photometric Study of Phocaea Group Asteroid 1584 Fuji

J. S. Drake (Dickinson College)

Observations of Phocaea group asteroid 1584 Fuji with the 31-inch telescope at Lowell Observatory in Arizona and the 24-inch telescope at Britton Observatory at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania from 31 January 2004 to 28 February 2004 indicate a sinusoidal lightcurve with a period of ~14.89 ± 0.01 hours, in conflict with published results. Reduction of these data to a standard magnitude system indicate a V-band amplitude of ~0.13 ± 0.02 magnitudes, further diverging from the accepted value. Application of the IAU Two-Parameter magnitude system for asteroids permits an estimation of the bodyís diameter. I compare these parameters with those published for Fujiís companions in the Phocaea group, other S-type objects in the main belt, and asteroids of similar size throughout the Solar System.

I thank Dickinson College and the Arizona Space Grant Consortium for their financial support.
