Asteroid 74350 1998 VO54

74350 1998 VO54 is a main belt asteroid with an estimated diameter of 5 km. It was discovered on November 14, 1998, by LINEAR at Socorro. The semi-major axis is 2.38 AU, the eccentricity is 0.128 and the inclination is 13.99 degrees.

This asteroid was observed on June 14, 2009 when it was in the field of another asteroid that I was studying. With only one night of data, very little can be said regarding the lightcurve. While a period could be derived, further observations are needed to determine the reality of this result.
