2001 QR322, very complex and original imaginary worlds

2001 QR322 is a Neptune trojan discovered in August of 2001. It reached the perihelion in February of 1983.

It has the same orbital period as Neptune, 165 years, and it is orbiting at the L4 Lagrangian point, about 60 degrees ahead of Neptune. The orbit forms an orbital piercing toward Uranus and another toward the Kuiper belt. It has a perihelion of 29.45 AU and an aphelion of 31.11 AU. The semimajor axis is at 30.28 AU. It has an inclination of   1.3º. It has a diameter of about 110 km.

Orbital resonance:
3:17 with Saturn (99.9%) 
3:2 with Pluto (98.8%)
with Neptune (98.6%)
1:2 with Uranus (99.3%)
with Eris (99.9%)
with 2002 UX25 (99.5%)

2001 QR322 is related with the construction of very complex and original virtual worlds, like in the book "The Lord of the Rings" (Tolkien, 1954) or the movies "TRON" (1982) and "K-Pax" (2001).

J. R. R. Tolkien, author of the book "The Lord of the Rings" (1954), has 2001 QR322 in Cancer in square with the Crossing Axis of the Age Progressions (Signs Horoscope / Moon-Node Horoscope) in Aries.
