Abstract We present new analysis of HST images of (47171) 1999 TC36 that confirm it as a triple system. Fits to the point-spread function (PSF) consistently show that the apparent primary is itself composed of two similar-sized components. The two central components, A1 and A2, can be consistently identified in each of nine epochs spread over 7 years of time. In each instance, the component separation, ranging from 0.023 ± 0.002 to 0.031 ± 0.003 arcsec, is roughly one half of the Hubble Space… Expand
