110393 Rammstein

110393 Rammstein is an asteroid (officially a minor planet) named after the German NDH-Metal band Rammstein. It was discovered by Jean-Claude Merlin.

(110393) Rammstein is in a 4.46-year elliptical orbit around the sun ranging in distance from 370.0 million km (at perihelion, closest point to the sun) to 440.7 million km (at aphelion, furthest point from the sun).

The previous perihelion passage occurred on 2006 Aug. 29.4 UT.

The orbit is inclined by 12.1 degrees to the ecliptic plane (the plane of the earth's orbit about the sun).

There is little information on the physical properties of (110393) Rammstein. Even its diameter is uncertain - a range of 3 to 6 km is probable.

A telescope is required to see this minor planet as its maximum brightness is some 1/48193 of the brightness of the faintest objects that can be seen with the unaided eye.

The Minor Planet Center (MPC) which is responsible for the designation of minor bodies in the solar system, officially announced the naming of the minor planet in its circulars of February 23, 2006.
