Abstract

Three selected asteroids, numbered 58, 360 and405, were observed during 2000at Yunnan Observatory, China. Thenew lightcurves are presented inthis paper. The synodic period of (58)Concordia is estimated as 9.90 ± 0.01hfor the first time. The synodic period of (405) Thia derived from ourobservation is 9.96 ± 0.01h, which is slightly different from the previousresult. For 360, we obtained the synodic period of 6.18 ± 0.02h which isconsistent with previous values. Additionally, the BV and UB-colourindexes for the three asteriods were also determined.
