Ten random things: March 30

Ten bodies in the solar system larger than 200 miles in diameter:

  1. Proteus (Neptunian moon, 260 mi. in diameter)
  2. Sedna (Trans-Neptunian Object, 918 mi.)
  3. 2006 QH181 (TNO, 475 mi.)
  4. 2005 RM43 (TNO, 360 mi.)
  5. 2004 UX10 (TNO, 328 mi.)
  6. Mars (Terrestrial planet, 4204 mi.)
  7. Triton (Neptunian moon, 1678 mi.)
  8. 2003 OP32 (TNO, 414 mi.)
  9. 1998 SN165 (TNO, 285 mi.)
  10. Tethys (Saturnian moon, 661 mi.)

There's a neat picture showing these ten bodies and the other 78 known bodies in the solar system larger than 200 miles in diameter here. Definitely worth a look, though you'll need to be patient if you're on dial-up.
