2015 TC25 is a near-Earth asteroid, and at only 6 feet (2 meters) across, it is thought to be the smallest asteroid observed over multiple years. The asteroid is notable for reflecting about 60% of the light that hits it, making it one of the brightest near-earth asteroids ever seen.

  • 2015 TC25 is a near-Earth asteroid, and at only 6 feet (2 meters) across, it is thought to be the smallest asteroid observed over multiple years. The asteroid is notable for reflecting about 60% of the light that hits it, making it one of the brightest near-earth asteroids ever seen. Discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey on 12 October 2015, it was observed with several ground-based telescopes. Radar observations were also made using the Arecibo Observatory as it passed 128,000 kilometers (79,500 miles) from the Earth. Observations suggest its surface composition is similar to Aubrite meteorites, a rare class of high-albedo differentiated meteorites. The albedo and radar polarization ratio suggest 2015 TC25 belongs to the E-type asteroids, and comparison of its spectral and dynamical properties suggest it may have broke off of the 70-kilometer diameter E-type asteroid 44 Nysa. 2015 TC25 is also notable for its rather short rotation period of only about 2 minutes, which, combined with its low surface gravity makes it very difficult for 2015 TC25 to retain a regolith layer. Its surface therefore most likely resembles a bare rock.
