Abstract

The results are reported of a search that was carried out in September 1993 for slow moving objects in the Solar System that may be potential members of the Kuiper belt of comets. Two objects, 1993 SB and 1993 SC were discovered and an analysis of all the images allows a possible rotation rate for 1993 SC to be determined. An estimate, based on the limiting magnitudes of the images, is made of the likely space density of such objects.
