6580 Philbland (1981 EW21) is a main-belt asteroid discovered on
March 2, 1981 by S. J. Bus at Siding Spring Observatory in the
course of the U.K. Schmidt-Caltech Asteroid Survey. Asteroids (from
Greek 'star' and 'like, in form') are a class of small Solar System
bodies in orbit around the Sun. They have also been called
planetoids, especially the larger ones. These terms have
historically been applied to any astronomical object orbiting the
Sun that did not show the disk of a planet and was not observed to
have the characteristics of an active comet, but as small objects
in the outer Solar System were discovered, their volatile-based
surfaces were found to more closely resemble comets, and so were
often distinguished from traditional asteroids.
