(268361) 2007 JJ43 is a trans-Neptunian object (TNO) orbiting the Sun near the outer edge of the Kuiper belt. If size estimates based on its absolute magnitude are correct, it is a possible dwarf planet.

Its discovery images were taken in 2007, and its absolute magnitude of 4.5 is one of the twenty brightest exhibited by TNOs. Assuming it has a typical albedo, this would make it roughly the same size as Ixion (about 530–620 km diameter). Micheal Brown's website lists it as a "highly likely" dwarf planet,[6] but its diameter has never been measured. In a paper in the Astrophysical Journal Letters András Pál and colleagues estimate a diameter for (278361) 2007 JJ43 of 610+170

Observations by Brown in 2012, using the W. M. Keck Observatory, suggest that (278361) 2007 JJ43 does not have a companion.[9]

As of 2014, it is about 41.3 AU from the Sun.[7]
