Asteroids: Data Files:
|Summary:||Adds Chariklo, a centaur with rings, and modifies Chiron to also have rings.|
|Description:||This add-on adds 10199 Chariklo, the largest known centaur. Chariklo is the only known asteroid known to have rings; the rings were discovered in 2013. Luke used Saturn's rings, because they look similar enough to Chariklo's rings.|
It's suspected that the centaur 2060 Chiron (already in Celestia) also has rings, so Luke have modified Chiron so it also has them.
NOTE: 10199 Chariklo is already in some other addons on this site: Jack Higgins' "Centaurs and TNO's" and Selden Ball's "178 Centaur Asteroids."
Update 1.1 fixes Chariklo's color, derived from its SMASS spectrum, and fixes the orientations of Chiron and Chariklo.
