is a (84922) 2003 VS 2 trans-Neptunian object discovered by the Near Earth Asteroid Tracking program on November 14, 2003. Like  Pluto, it is in a 2:3 orbital resonance with Neptune,  giving it the orbital properties of a  plutino. Mike Brown's website lists it as "likely" a dwarf planet. However, Brown assumed that VS2 was much bigger than it really is, and the  light-curve analysis has questioned whether it would truly be in the hydrostatic equilibrium.
Orbit and rotation
Pluto, (84922) 2003 VS is locked in the 2 3:2 mean-motion resonance with Neptune, although its orbit is significantly less eccentric than Pluto's. It also has slightly smaller orbital inclination.
(84922) 2003 VS has a significant light-curve amplitude of 2 . The most likely value of the rotation period is 0.21 ±0.01 . 7.41 ±0.02 h
Physical characteristics (84922) 2003 VS has a moderately red surface with a 2 moderately red color indexes B−V=0.93, V−R=0.59. Its geometrical albedo is about 15%. 
In 2007, its diameter was initially estimated by the
Spitzer Space Telescope at . 725 ±200 km However, in 2012, this was reduced to  after new 523.0 km +35.1 −34.4 Herschel Space Telescope observations. In 2019,  2003 VS was found to be 2 ellipsoidal in shape based on stellar occultations that occurred in 2013 and 2014 ; the light curve derived from the occultations suggests that this plutino is not in hydrostatic equilibrium and hence not a dwarf planet.  The dimensions of  2003 VS are estimated at 2 , with a volume-equivalent diameter 627.6 km × 531 km × 494.6 km . 548.3 km +29.5 −44.6 Assuming a Pluto-like density of 2 g/cm  3, one can obtain a mass estimate of about 1.5 ×10 kg.
