20000 VARUNA. 50000 QUAOAR . It has a perihelion of 40.5 AU and an aphelion of 45.3 AU . (19308) 1996 TO 66 (also written (19308) 1996 TO66) is a trans-Neptunian object that was discovered in 1996 by Chadwick Trujillo, David Jewitt and Jane Luu.Until 20000 Varuna was discovered, it was the second-largest known object in the Kuiper belt, after Pluto. Its surface is moderately red (similar to Quaoar again) and small amounts of water ice have been detected on its surface. 20000 Varuna is a big Kuiper belt object (KBO).

The most probable composition for the surface of Varuna is a mixture of amorphous silicates (25%), complex organics (35%), amorphous carbon (15%) and water ice (25%). EDIT ).

Orbital period 285.4 years. Color is best described as. Its orbit takes 103440.6 d (283.20 years) years to travel round the Sun.

Its orbital period also is similar to Quaoar at 283 years. Its orbital period is 282.04 years. Orbital period 247.49 years.

Sun. • Varuna - Minor Planet #20000 (discovered in 2000), 550 miles in diameter, orbital period 285 years, currently resides at 3 Leo. [It was not the first discovered -- that was 1992 QB1, which has not yet been named.] Orcus has a nearly identical orbital size, orbital period (year) and inclination as Pluto, although tilted in the opposite direction. It was discovered by R. Macmillan of the Spacewatch project on November 28, 2000, and provisionally designated 2000 WR106 before being permanently named after the Hindu god Varuna. 285.97 years. 2000 WR 106: Minor planet category.

• Ixion - Minor Planet #28978 (discovered in 2001), 950 miles in diameter, orbital period 246 years, currently resides at 26 Sagittarius .

Varuna's orbital period is similar to Quaoar's at 283 years and its rotational period of only 6.34 hours gives it a similar shape to Haumea - namely that of a triaxial ellipsoid. Orbital period 248.09 years (55636) 2002 TX300 .

It could be a dwarf planet.Before it was named Varuna, it had the provisional designation 2000 WR 106.. Varuna is named after the Hindu deity Varuṇa. It bears a special place among the 'firsts' of the planets beyond Pluto -- being the first one to be named (bearing an honorary place in the Minor Planet Catalogue -- number 20,000).
