Info: Jupiter Trojans

Trojan asteroids are defined as minor planets which orbit the Sun while in the L4 or L5 Lagrange regions of a planet. That is, they orbit at a 1:1 resonance with a larger planet, either 60o ahead (L4) or 60o behind (L5) that planet. A great number of the asteroids in our solar system are trojan asteroids of the planet Jupiter.

In the case of Jupiter trojans, the asteroids at L4 are named after Greek warriors from the Trojan war (or Greek characters from the Odyssey), and the asteroids at L5 are named after Trojan warriors (hence the term.) There are two exceptions: 617 Patroclus, a Greek spy in the Trojan camp, and 624 Hektor, a Trojan spy in the Greek camp.

This page lists all of the named Jupiter trojans. In those cases where the referent is an actual character for which a meaningful symbol canbe conjured, the symbol is described on its respective page. In those cases where the referent just comes from a list in a name of mythic warriors, it is given a standard-issue symbol here.
