post-starburst galaxies, moving object

We worked on getting Quintero's K+A galaxy catalog into archival form for other users.

I started work on the environmental properties of K+A galaxies by looking at the 1h-1 Mpc radius overdensity measurements. Indeed, they are much more like those of spirals than those of ellipticals, as we found in Quintero et al (linked above).

Morad and I found a moving object in the KPNO mosaic I made yesterday. It puzzled us for a while (because of its proper motion of about one arcmin per hour), but now I just think it is a high-inclination asteroid within an AU or so. If anyone tells us it is interesting, we will give the data to someone who will use them.
