Astro::Catalog::Query:User(Contributed Perl DocumAstro::Catalog::Query::MPC(3)

NAME
       Astro::Catalog::Query::MPC - A query request to the Minor Planet
       Center's	Minor Planet Checker.

SYNOPSIS
	 $mpc =	new Astro::Catalog::Query::MPC(	RA => $ra,
						Dec => $dec,
						Year =>	$year,
						Month => $month,
						Day => $day,
						Radmax => $radius,
						Limit => $limit,
						ObsCode	=> $obscode,
					       );

	 my $catalog = $mpc->querydb();

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides an object-oriented interface to the	Minor Planet
       Center's	Minor Planet Checker webform available at
       http://scully.harvard.edu/~cgi/CheckMP. It stores information about
       asteroids found in a search radius at a specific	epoch in an
       "Astro::Catalog"	object.

       The object will by default pick up the proxy information	from the
       HTTP_PROXY and NO_PROXY environment variables. See the LWP::UserAgent
       documentation for details.

       See Astro::Catalog::BaseQuery for the catalog-independent methods.
