  • Iapetus (moon)

    Third-largest natural satellite of Saturn, eleventh-largest in the Solar System, and the largest body in the Solar System known not to be in hydrostatic equilibrium. Discoveries by the Cassini mission in 2007 revealed several unusual features, such as a massive equatorial ridge running three-quarters of the way around the moon. Wikipedia

  • 2 Pallas

    Second asteroid to have been discovered (after Ceres), and is one of the largest asteroids in the Solar System. Estimated 7% of the mass of the asteroid belt, it is the third-most-massive asteroid, being 10–30% less massive than Vesta. Wikipedia

  • Haumea

    Possible dwarf planet located beyond Neptune's orbit. Discovered in 2004 by a team headed by Mike Brown of Caltech at the Palomar Observatory in the United States and independently in 2005, by a team headed by José Luis Ortiz Moreno at the Sierra Nevada Observatory in Spain, though the latter claim has been contested. Wikipedia

  • Gliese 581c

    Planet orbiting within the Gliese 581 system. Second planet discovered in the system and the third in order from the star. Wikipedia

  • Dysnomia (moon)

    Only known moon of the dwarf planet Eris (the most massive known dwarf planet in the Solar System) and very probably the second-largest known moon of a dwarf planet, after Pluto I Charon.

Keck Observatory, and carried the provisional designation of until officially named Dysnomia after the daughter of the Greek goddess Eris. Wikipedia
