This mysterious main belt object comes in from the cold - somewhat.

At this diameter, it seems to be a Ceres-like potato, but a fairly relaxed and regular one.
I'm certainly not going to call it a dwarf planet, but it must be somewhere near the boundary...

Thanks for the article. Asteroids are a rich load to mine as they tell of planetary formation - destruction. Hard call on dwarf planet or not.
