A Sedna-like body with a perihelion of 80 astronomical units
TLDR
The detection of 2012 VP113 confirms that Sedna is not an isolated object; instead, both bodies may be members of the inner Oort cloud, whose objects could outnumber all other dynamically stable populations in the Solar System. Expand
The Albedo Distribution of Jovian Trojan Asteroids
We present radiometrically derived V-band geometric albedos and effective radii for 32 Jovian Trojan asteroids, using near-simultaneous mid-infrared and visible observations. We sampled the large endExpand
Time-resolved photometry of kuiper belt objects: rotations, shapes and phase functions
We present a systematic investigation of the rotational light curves of trans-Neptunian objects based on extensive optical data from Mauna Kea. Four of 13 objects (corresponding to 31%) in our sampleExpand
High albedos of low inclination Classical Kuiper belt objects
Abstract We present observations of thermal emission from fifteen transneptunian objects (TNOs) made using the Spitzer Space Telescope . Thirteen of the targets are members of the ClassicalExpand
A New Population of High-Redshift Short-Duration Gamma-Ray Bursts
The redshift distribution of the short-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is a crucial, but currently fragmentary,Expand
A STUDY OF THE DIVERSE T DWARF POPULATION REVEALED BY WISE
TLDR
The substantial increase in the number of known late-type T dwarfs provides a population that will be used to test models of cold atmospheres and star formation and supports the possible re-emergence of clouds after the L/T transition. Expand
Physical Properties of Trans-Neptunian Object (20000) Varuna
We present new time-resolved photometric observations of the bright trans-Neptunian object (20000) Varuna and use them to study the rotation period, shape, and color. In observations from 2001Expand
CHARACTERIZATION OF HIGH PROPER MOTION OBJECTS FROM THE WIDE-FIELD INFRARED SURVEY EXPLORER ∗
We present an analysis of high proper motion objects that we have found in a recent study and in this work with multi-epoch astrometry from the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE). UsingExpand
Light Curves of Dwarf Plutonian Planets and other Large Kuiper Belt Objects: Their Rotations, Phase Functions, and Absolute Magnitudes
I report new time-resolved light curves and determine the rotations and phase functions of several large Kuiper Belt objects, which includes the dwarf planet Eris (2003 UB313). Three of the newExpand
New Extreme Trans-Neptunian Objects: Towards a Super-Earth in the Outer Solar System
We are conducting a survey for extreme solar system objects to understand Sedna and 2012 VP113 and determine if an unknown massive planet exists in the outer solar system. Two new objects, 2014 SR349Expand
