This rather large asteroid, with a diameter of about 12 km, has a rotational period of about 11 hours (Wisniewski et al., 1996). Barucci et al. (1994) obtained the near infrared spectrum of this object (1.0-2.5 m) and the coupling with that obtained in the visible (Fig. 1) suggests the belonging of this object to the S taxonomical class. No similarity with ordinary chondrite spectra has been identified.
