The Trans-Neptunian Object (84922) 2003 VS2 through Stellar Occultations

We present results from three world-wide campaigns that resulted in the detections of two single-chord and one multi-chord stellar occultations by the plutino object (84922) 2003 VS2. From the

The Changing Rotational Light-curve Amplitude of Varuna and Evidence for a Close-in Satellite

From CCD observations carried out with different telescopes, we present short-term photometric measurements of the large trans-Neptunian object Varuna in 10 epochs, spanning around 19 years. We

Small Bodies Near and Far (SBNAF): Characterization of asteroids and TNOs

We present results from an EU Horizon2020-funded benchmark study (2016-2019) that addresses critical points in reconstructing physical and thermal properties of near-Earth, main-belt, and

Activity of (2060) Chiron possibly caused by impacts

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Unions Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, under Grant Agreement No. 687378. Funding from Spanish grants



Short-term rotational variability in the large TNO 2005FY9

Context. Despite the fact that 2005FY 9 is one of the largest trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) and a dwarf planet candidate, little is known about this object apart from constraints on its surface

A study of Trans-Neptunian object 55636 (2002 TX300)

We report on physical properties of the bright Trans-Neptunian Object 2003 TX300 based on a large set of observa- tions taken in different wavelength ranges. Broad band CCD observations aimed at

New insights on ices in Centaur and Transneptunian populations

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 2001

Coordinated thermal and optical observations of Trans-Neptunian object (20 000)Varuna from Sierra Nevada

We report on coordinated thermal and optical measurements of trans-Neptunian object (20000)Varuna obtained in January-February 2002, respectively from the IRAM 30-m and IAA 1.5 m telescopes. The

“TNOs are Cool”: A survey of the trans-Neptunian region - IX. Thermal properties of Kuiper belt objects and Centaurs from combined Herschel and Spitzer observations

Aims. The goal of this work is to characterize the ensemble thermal properties of the Centaurs/trans-Neptunian population. Methods. Thermal flux measurements obtained with Herschel/PACS and

Short-term variability of a sample of 29 trans-Neptunian objects and Centaurs

Aims. We attempt to increase the number of trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) whose short-term variability has been studied and compile a high quality database with the least possible biases, which may

Short-term rotational variability of eight KBOs from Sierra Nevada Observatory

In 2001, we started a CCD photometry programme to study the short-term variability of some of the brightest TNOs and Centaurs from the Sierra Nevada observatory. In this paper, we report our latest

Transneptunian objects and Centaurs from light curves

Aims. We compile and analyze an extended database of light curve parameters scattered in the literature to search for correlations and study physical properties, including internal structure
