Asteroid 1311 Knopfia

1127 Mimi is a main belt asteroid with an estimated diameter of about 45 km. It was discovered on January 13, 1929 by Sylvain Arend at Uccle. The semi-major axis is 2.595 AU, the eccentricity is 0.246 and the inclination is 14.75 degrees.

This asteroid was observed on two consecutive nights in June 2009. When these observations showed identical parts of the lightcurve, a request was made on the CALL website for international co-operation. Additional images were taken by René Roy from Blauvac, France, and the data was compiled by Raoul Behrend from Geneva, Switzerland, to form the lightcurve presented below. This is an asteroid that requires further observation.
