(86047) 1999 OY3, also written as (86047) 1999 OY3, is a trans-Neptunian object that resides in the Kuiper belt beyond Pluto. It was discovered on July 18, 1999, at the Mauna Kea Observatory, Hawaii.

Haumea family[edit]

1999 OY3 is a candidate member of the Haumea family and probably has a very high albedo.[8]

Of the known Haumea-family members, 2009 OY3 has the dimmest absolute magnitude (H) of the group at 6.8, suggesting that it is also the smallest member of the group.
