Then you should try another search service.  I like HOTBOT (www.hotbot.com)
for quick and dirty.

You should have also gotten back some stuff on asteroids, as Thusnelda is
one of the brighter ones (about magnitude 12, iirc).

I found several sites, but their usefulness depends on your grasp of german
as a written language.  The stuff about Thusnelda is fairly obscure, so
isn't much translated.  Hang on a little longer (half an hour or so, and
I'll probably have a book reference that will have all the required data.
If your library can get it, of course.
