[Boiler Plate]

First trans-Neptunian object to have its rotation period measured (6 hours, the same as Chiron). Briefly thought to be the largest KBO known, larger than 1996 TL66 found just prior to it. Has a more typical orbit, but much higher incline and closer perihelion than Cubewanos. Later found to be a member of the Haumea family, possibly in 11:19 resonance with Neptune.
