(20325) Julianoey

"It is our pleasure to congratulate you on joining the "club" of those with named asteroids". Quote Alan Harris and Petr Pravec

The asteroid (20325) HO27 was recently renamed to the author (20325) Julianoey.

This animation was done using images taken on 8th of April 2016 in this year's apparition in which photometric work was done to capture the continuation of the events during the binary transits and eclipses.

Discover Circumstances:

(20325) 1998 HO_27
   D. Pray, Sugarloaf Mountain Observatory, South Deerfield, MA, U.S.A.; P. Pravec, Ondrejov Observatory; V. Benishek, Belgrade Observatory; J.
Pollock, Appalachian State University; W. Cooney and J. Gross, Sonoita Research Observatory; D. Terrell, Southwest Research Institute; D. E.
Reichart, J. B. Haislip and A. P. LaCluyze, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; and A. Verveer and T. Spuck, Perth Observatory, report that photometric observations obtained during 2014 Nov. 22-Dec. 20 reveal that minor planet (20325) is a binary system with an orbital period of 23.54 +/-
0.01 hr.  The primary shows a period of 3.24474 +/- 0.00008 hr, and it has a lightcurve amplitude of 0.13 mag, suggesting a nearly spheroidal shape.
Mutual eclipse/occultation events that are 0.09- to 0.19-magnitude deep indicate a secondary-to-primary mean-diameter ratio of 0.30 +/- 0.02.
