Stop tracking ?

Question

I have Klawed few asteroids, but my first tries failed, so that Huge one flew away. It will pass Duna and go on who knows where.
Since I am trying to keep my lists simple I want to stop tracking it.
I am aware that I can destroy the attached vessel, but I am trying for maximum realistic experience. I even deorbit my debris with a barge.
So I just want to put it in hibernation, stop tracking and forget about it.

Is it still possible ? I remember it was at some point. Just can not find it.
Can this also be applied to other OWNED objects ?

You can stop tracking asteroids as long as they are just signatures.

However, as soon as an asteroid comes close enough to the player that it's worth showing on the UI (probably within 100 km), the asteroid itself is created as a vessel, consisting of a single part (a potatoRoid part). It has to be a vessel in order or the Klaw to work (it's essentially a docking maneuver). Once it has been created as a vessel, it stays a vessel forever, regardless of whether or not you decide to attach somethign to it.

You cannot stop tracking vessels other than through terminating them.

Therefore, you are limited to terminating asteroids that have already been created as vessels.

Thanks ! I will have to figure out how to deal with them sometime in the future. 

Maybe set em as something like Planes and tick it off forever ...

Thanks for the fast response !

 

 

EDIT :
Good thing I had some fuel. Release, Puff away 900m, Point to that Huge asteroid, Full Throttle. Hold, Hold, Steady ... Puff. Both are gone (expected only the tug).
Fixed forever.

Go to the attached vessel and r-click its control part. Change its vehicle type to one you normally have turned off in map view. It will still exist, but you won't see it anymore.
