Shape model of Asteroid (153591) 2001 SN263

This data set contains the three-dimensional shapes and rotation states of the three components of near-Earth asteroid (153591) 2001 SN263 based on radar images and optical lightcurves (Becker et al., 2015. 2001 SN263 was observed in 2003 using the 12.6-cm radar at Arecibo Observatory. Optical lightcurves were obtained at several observatories and used to further constrain the shape modeling.
