Discovery of Thereus

09.08.2001 (MPC/List of Centaurs and Scattered-Disk Objects)

The discovery date of Thereus is controversial, because there is no observation for August 9 in the MPEC where the discovery was announced. In addition the Minor Planet Center has announced a triple identification: 2001 PT13, 1999 NE2 and 1995 MM6 were found to be the same body.

17.07.2001 (the first observation for 2001 PT13 in the announcement of the MPC)
