January 8, 2011: Dr. Michael David Hicks (Jet Propulsion Laboratory) contacted the AAVSO requesting precision
photometry of three solar system objects in support of NASA's DAWN mission to Vesta. These objects, called
"Vestoids", are near-Earth objects with similar reflectance spectra to Vesta itself, suggesting they may be fragments
of that larger body. Broad-band photometry may help constrain object sizes and compositions.
The link below contains the list of the current stars in the AAVSO PEP-V program. Observations of any of these stars made using the AAVSO standard PEP method and these comparison and check stars may be submitted to AAVSO headquarters for automated data processing.
