The asteroid 617 Patroclus and its companion are indicated by the green triangle in Jupiter's trailing Lagrange point. The white dots indicate the position of the 10,000 known asteroids in our solar system with diameters greater than 10 kolimeters. They cluster in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, plus the two Lagrange points of Jupiter's orbit.
