8246 Kotov is a main-belt asteroid. The asteroid belt is the region
of the Solar System located roughly between the orbits of the
planets Mars and Jupiter. It is occupied by numerous irregularly
shaped bodies called asteroids or minor planets. The asteroid belt
is also termed the main asteroid belt or main belt because there
are other asteroids in the Solar System such as near-Earth
asteroids and trojan asteroids. Maybe half the mass of the belt is
contained in the four largest asteroids: 1 Ceres, 4 Vesta, 2
Pallas, and 10 Hygiea. These have mean diameters of more than 400
km, while Ceres, the asteroid belt's only identified dwarf planet,
is about 950 km in diameter.
