(82075) 2000 YW134, provisionally known as 2000 YW134, is a binary trans-Neptunian object (TNO). It is likely in 3:8 resonance with Neptune or possibly a detached object.

Physical characteristics

Assuming a generic TNO albedo of 0.09, the primary is about 431 kilometres (268 mi) in diameter with its secondary at 237 kilometres (147 mi) in diameter.[3][4] In 2010, (82075) 2000 YW134 was observed by the Herschel Space Telescope in the far-infrared. No thermal radiation has been detected, which allowed astronomers to place an upper limit on its size; the single-object diameter should be less than 500 kilometres (310 mi).[5]

In the visible part of the spectrum, the surface of (82075) 2000 YW134 is moderately red.[6]

Classifications

Possible dwarf planet

With a generically estimated diameter of 430 kilometres (270 mi), (82075) 2000 YW134 is a possible dwarf planet.[8]

Uncertain category

(82075) 2000 YW134 currently has a perihelion distance of 41 astronomical units (AU).[1] In 2006, Lykawka, using a 4–5 Gyr integration, indicated that (82075) 2000 YW134 is a detached object with perihelion larger than 40 AU. However, the Deep Ecliptic Survey, using a 10My integration (last observation: 2007-11-10), shows it to be in 3:8 resonance with Neptune, with a minimum perihelion distance of 38.1 AU.[2] In 2007, Emel’yanenko and Kiseleva showed an 84% probability that it is in the 3:8 resonance.[9]

Satellite

The moon of (82075) 2000 YW134 is relatively large compared to the primary, because the moon is only 1.3 magnitudes fainter than the primary.[10]
