Varuna - ellipsoid.

By observing the star coverage that Varuna has a size of 660-1130 km.

In the near future to publish the results of observations of coverage satellite over a large body of Haumea. While the analysis of photometric rotation suggest 19601518996 km.

I wonder whether it is possible for this form of ice planet the size of the Earth?

But I think there is a direct link with the rotational speed.

http://arxiv.org/abs/0910.1472v2



(20000) Varuna H=3.6 Single Peak Period 3.17 [h] Double Peak Period 6.34 [h]
(136108) Haumea H=0.2 Double Peak Period 3.91 [h]
