2007RW10 Neptunian Trojan ?
04/24/09 at 12:32:42
 
When it was discovered in 2007 , 2007RW10 was believed to be a Neptunain trojan according a wiki article .  
So...  
In rotating frame to Neptune this asteroid shows a tadpole orbit around Neptune for some 10.000 years , but then escapes for a while , heading for a return . This behaviour continues for at least 60.000 y .  
Shown herunder are the first 40.000 y from now.

Hi Frank;
 
Thanks for the animation.
 
I have re-worded the wiki article to make it clear that "it is no longer listed as such."
