Abstract

We report infrared thermal emission measurements of 1862 Apollo, which is the type example of an Earth-crossing asteroid. We derive a geometric albedo of 0.21 ± 0.02 which is within the albedo range of the S class of asteroids. The effective diameter was observed to vary with rotation from 1.2 ± 0.1 to 1.5 ± 0.1 km.
