Difference between Asteroid belt and Hilda asteroid

Asteroid belt vs. Hilda asteroid

The asteroid belt is the circumstellar disc in the Solar System located roughly between the orbits of the planets Mars and Jupiter. The Hilda asteroids (adj. Hildian) are a dynamical group of asteroids in a 3:2 orbital resonance with Jupiter.

Similarities between Asteroid belt and Hilda asteroid

Asteroid belt and Hilda asteroid have 19 things in common (in Unionpedia): Asteroid, Asteroid family, Astronomical unit, C-type asteroid, Comet, Ecliptic, Jupiter, Jupiter trojan, Near-Earth object, Orbit, Orbital eccentricity, Orbital inclination, Orbital period, Orbital resonance, Perihelion and aphelion, Planet, Semi-major and semi-minor axes, Sun, Trojan (astronomy).


Asteroids are minor planets, especially those of the inner Solar System.

Orbital eccentricity

The orbital eccentricity of an astronomical object is a parameter that determines the amount by which its orbit around another body deviates from a perfect circle.

Orbital inclination

Orbital inclination measures the tilt of an object's orbit around a celestial body.

Orbital period

The orbital period is the time a given astronomical object takes to complete one orbit around another object, and applies in astronomy usually to planets or asteroids orbiting the Sun, moons orbiting planets, exoplanets orbiting other stars, or binary stars.

Orbital resonance

In celestial mechanics, an orbital resonance occurs when orbiting bodies exert a regular, periodic gravitational influence on each other, usually because their orbital periods are related by a ratio of small integers.

Perihelion and aphelion

The perihelion of any orbit of a celestial body about the Sun is the point where the body comes nearest to the Sun.

A planet is an astronomical body orbiting a star or stellar remnant that is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity, is not massive enough to cause thermonuclear fusion, and has cleared its neighbouring region of planetesimals.

Semi-major and semi-minor axes

In geometry, the major axis of an ellipse is its longest diameter: a line segment that runs through the center and both foci, with ends at the widest points of the perimeter.

Trojan (astronomy)

In astronomy, a trojan is a minor planet or moon that shares the orbit of a planet or larger moon, wherein the trojan remains in the same, stable position relative to the larger object.
