(126154) 2001 YH140, also written as (126154) 2001 YH140, is a resonant trans-Neptunian object discovered on 18 December 2001, by American astronomers Chad Trujillo and Michael Brown at the Palomar Observatory in California. It measures approximately 345 kilometers in diameter.[4]

Orbit and rotation

2001 YH140 is locked in 3:5 mean-motion resonance with Neptune.[4] When it makes three revolutions around the Sun, Neptune makes exactly five. The rotation period of (126154) 2001 YH140 is estimated to be 13.25 ± 0.2 hours.[5]

Physical characteristics

In 2010 thermal flux from (126154) 2001 YH140 in the far-infrared was measured by the Herschel Space Telescope. As a result, its size has been estimated to be 300–390 km (190–240 mi).[4]
