How bright is Asteroid 1036 Ganymed?
The current visual magnitude of Asteroid 1036 Ganymed is 16.15. Given its brightness, Asteroid 1036 Ganymed should be visible with the help of a telescope havng an aperture of 20 inches (500mm) or more.
The following chart is the predicted light curve (visual magnitude as a function of time) of Asteroid 1036 Ganymed, according to the most recent ephemerides data. Magnitude data is sampled with a 2 days interval and there might be inaccuracies for objects changing brightness very rapidly during the course of a few days. For comets there could be large discrepancies between the observed and predicted brightness because of their highly dynamic behaviour.
