We consider an observer design for a spacecraft modeled as a rigid body in the proximity of an asteroid. The nonlinear observer is constructed on the nonlinear state space of motion of a rigid body, which is the tangent bundle of the Lie group of rigid body motions in three-dimensional Euclidean space. The framework of geometric mechanics is used for the observer design. States of motion of the spacecraft are estimated based on state measurements. In addition, the observer designed can also estimate the gravity parameter of the asteroid, assuming the asteroid to have a spherically symmetric mass distribution. Almost global convergence of state estimates and gravity parameter estimate to their corresponding true values is demonstrated analytically, and verified numerically.
