  • Apart from Mercury that has no known co-orbital companions, Venus remains as the inner planet that hosts the smallest number of known co-orbitals (two): (322756) 2001 CK 32 and 2002 VE 68 . Both objects have absolute magnitudes 18 < H < 21 and were identified as Venus co-orbitals in 2004. Here, we analyse the orbit of the recently discovered asteroid 2012 XE 133 with H = 23.5 mag to conclude that it is a new Venus co-orbital currently following a transitional trajectory between Venus… CONTINUE READING
