Solar System: Asteroids
 
This page contains data files, textures, models and other files related to asteroids.
 
Note: Many full-surface maps have gaps (based on current scientific data) that have been filled in with imaginary data. In addition, some maps may need to be realigned for accurate use within Celestia, such as north-south / east-west (180 degree) rotation or longitude / latitude alignment.
