CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  $mpc = new Astro::Catalog::Query::MPC( RA => $ra,
                                         Dec => $dec,
                                         Year => $year,
                                         Month => $month,
                                         Day => $day,
                                         Radmax => $radius,
                                         Limit => $limit,
                                         ObsCode => $obscode,
                                        );

  my $catalog = $mpc->querydb();



DESCRIPTION

This module provides an object-oriented interface to the Minor Planet Center’s Minor Planet Checker webform available at http://scully.harvard.edu/~cgi/CheckMP. It stores information about asteroids found in a search radius at a specific epoch in an Astro::Catalog object.

The object will by default pick up the proxy information from the HTTP_PROXY and NO_PROXY environment variables. See the LWP::UserAgent documentation for details.

See Astro::Catalog::BaseQuery for the catalog-independent methods.
