2013 FY27
     S. S. Sheppard, Carnegie Institution for Science, reports the discovery
of a satellite to the trans-Neptunian object 2013 FY27.  The satellite was
detected about 0".17 at a position angle of 135 degrees from the primary in
four 545-s images taken with the WFPC3/UVIS instrument with the Hubble Space
Telescope during 2018 Jan. 15.058-15.104 UT.  The satellite is about 3
magnitudes fainter than the primary in the F350LP filter.  The projected
separation of the satellite is about 9800 km from the primary.
