Abstract We have observed (66652) 1999 RZ253 with the Hubble Space Telescope at seven separate epochs and have fit an orbit to the observed relative positions of this binary. Two orbital solutions have been identified that differ primarily in the inclination of the orbit plane. The best fit corresponds to an orbital period, P = 46.263 ± 0.006 0.074 days, semimajor axis a = 4660 ± 170 km and orbital eccentricity e = 0.460 ± 0.013 corresponding to a system mass m = 3.7 ± 0.4 × 10 18 kg .
