Comment[edit]

433 Eros has a lower number than 1221 Amor, so it was discovered earlier. But, that contradicts the article (saying that 1221 Amor was the first Amor asteroid to be discovered and that Eros is an Amor asteroid). What's up with that? --- hike395 02:02, 22 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Use of "from the inside" or "from the outside"[edit]

Given that we're talking intersecting ellipses, isn't it incorrect to use the terms 'from the inside' or 'from the outside'? By their geometric definition, when two ellipses intersect--and cross--they'll both be 'outside' at some point and they'll both be 'inside' at some point. Can I take out these terms?
