    Hello Folks,
    You might like the tinkering I've done for adding new interesting dates for the asteroid Pallas. This is a kind of patch already described in a previous posting.

    First save a unchanged copy of your messier.fab file; Put this copy in a safe place;
    Paste and save these lines into your Stellarium messier.fab file at the end so you can find it if this data does not work for you;

    9973 AS 12 43.1 -01 -27 7.6 5.0 0 Asteroid_Pallas_mag_7.6_02/22 m9990 Stellarium
    9974 AS 12 39.7 +01 +55 7.4 5.0 0 Asteroid_Pallas_mag_7.4_03/03 m9990 Stellarium
    9975 AS 12 38.1 +03 +03 7.3 5.0 0 Asteroid_Pallas_mag_7.3_03/03 m9990 Stellarium
    9976 AS 12 31.3 +07 +21 7.1 5.0 0 Asteroid_Pallas_mag_7.1_03/17 m9990 Stellarium
    9976 AS 12 16.9 +14 +37 7.5 5.0 0 Asteroid_Pallas_mag_7.5_04/07 m9990 Stellarium

    Then copy the "halo.png" in your textures file to your desktop and rename it m9990.
    Add this m9990 png back to the textures file. Now run Stellarium;

    This addition works fine for me and shows me a good positions for Asteroid Pallas;
    Remember this addition does not track the asteroid actively; It only gives the position for the data you have just entered;
    Please post if you are successful with this;
    I am very interested in your experiences;

      Done and done. Light pollution makes it impossible for me to see the passer-by, so your addons are much appreciated.
