951 Gaspra and 66 Maja are planned to be targets of fly-bies by the GALILEO and CASSINI Space Missions. The fly-by of 951 Gaspra is expected for October 91 and will show for the first time an asteroid in close-up. To support the planning, an Earth-based international observing campaign has started in 1988. We present the photoelectric and CCD light curves obtained at that time at the observatories of Asiago, Catania and Loiano (Italy), and their composites derived applying Fourier analysis. The collected data for 951 Gaspra allowed to determine the sideral rotational period, the prograde sense of rotation, H and G values and B-V and V-R color indices.
