Solar System Scratchpad

[Boiler Plate]

One of the first four Plutinos which were discovered within four days of each other, the last of these to be discovered, but the first to be confirmed, and the object with the largest absolute magnitude known at the time (363 km, about a third of Charon). The first to have its spectra taken with high resolution. Its color was in between Pholus and Chiron's, demonstrating that not all KBOs were extremely red. Also shown to have methane on its surface.
