The moon of (225088) 2007 OR10, bifurcation during the understanding of something

A Moon of (225088) 2007 OR10, of about 300 km, was discovered in September of 2010 and was announced in October of 2016.

The discovery of the moon clashed with the movie "Unstoppable" (2010), in which, as in the movie "Back to the Future" (1985), is also shown the typical (225088) 2007 OR10's involvement in another person.


Initially, (225088) 2007 OR10 was nicknamed 'Snow White', because it was thought to be very bright white, but then it was discovered that it was actually bright red. This type of bifurcation during the understanding of something, is typical of the quality of the number "10" applied to the resonance with Neptune, like in the movie "Unstoppable" (2010).

Its discoverers (Megan Schwamb, Mike Brown and David Rabinowitz) have the right to choose an official name until November 2019, when it will become 10 years since it received its permanent number.
