Solar System Scratchpad

[Boiler Plate]

The most intrinsically bright one found at the time of its discovery in 2001. Thought to be larger than Ceres and Charon, and the largest KBO known, but now only 650 km, smaller than the previously largest known KBO Varuna, but still large enough to probably be a dwarf planet. Originally thought to be in 3:4 resonance, it is now considered a Plutino with 2:3 resonance. Currently, the fifth largest Plutino.
