Abstract

We present rotation periods of four asteroids: 1660 Wood, 7173 Sepkoski, 12738 Satoshimiki, and (23233) 2000 WM72. The observations were undertaken using the SARA (Southeastern Association for Research in Astronomy) South telescope, located in Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile, from 2011 December to 2012 April. The following synodic periods were found: 1660 Wood, P = 6.8088 ± 0.0002 h; 7173 Sepkoski, P = 2.44 ± 0.02 h; 12738 Satoshimiki, P = 8.708 ± 0.001 h; and (23233) 2000 WM72, P = 3.732 ± 0.003 h.
