Haumea has a ring !!

Haumea has a ring !!
A weird icy rock out past Pluto in addition to spinning quite rapidly, and having 2 moons, also has a ring. The ring orbits at an altitude where it takes 3X as long to go around Haumea as Haumea takes to spin on it's axis once.

Weird little goomer. Not getting my hopes up, but if a New Horizons II is ever launched, this is almost certainly going to be the target.

Haumea joins Chiron and Chariklo in being a small, cold, outer solar system object with a ring.

"Should have put a ring on it."

conceivably, your avatar is wielding a hula hoop just below frame.

More than coincidence ?

hehe, he's just standing on his hind legs and his body thrusts forward when he vocalizes. GIF's have to be smaller than a non-moving avatar, so I can't ever fit the entire picture.
