We present new solar phase curve observations of the 2003 EL61 collisional family showing that all the members have light-scattering properties similar to the bright icy satellites of the giant planets and dwarf planets. Compared with other Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs), the five family members we observe (2003 EL61, 2002 TX300, 2003 OP32, 2005 RR43, and 1995 SM55) have conspicuously neutral color (V – I = 0.6-0.8 mag) and flat phase curves at small phase angles (phase coefficients of 0.0-0.1 mag… Expand
