  • Upon discovery, asteroid (309239) 2007 RW10 was considered a Neptune Trojan candidate. The object is currently listed by the Minor Planet Center as a Centaur but it is classified as a Scattered Disk or Trans-Neptunian Object by others. Now that its arc-length is 8,154 days and has been observed for more than 20 years, a more robust classification should be possible. Here we explore the orbital behaviour of this object in order to reveal its current dynamical status; we perform N-body… CONTINUE READING
