- When you start to enter the name of a target (at least two characters), a list of 10 names is proposed for autocompletion (wildcards
are not recognized by the autocompletion, which is a full-text search). If your target is not listed then add more letters until it appears.
To select a target, click on its name, or use the up and down arrows to highlight it and then hit Enter key. A comma is automatically
appended to the result in order to search for another target. The autocompletion is provided by the SsODNet Resolver REST API
- Resolver options
- The form allows to refine the resolver request: choose the type of targets, choose to compute or not its ephemeris,
provide an epoch formatted as a Julian day or as any English textual datetime (e.g. now, 2005-4-16 1:53:34, 10 September 2000,
+1 day, +1 week, +1 week 2 days 4 hours 2 seconds, next Thursday, last Monday, etc.), and choose the maximum number of objects
to be retrieved by the query (zero stands for no limit).
