     A. Aznar, Observatorio Isaac Aznar, Aras de los Olmos, Spain; O.
Vaduvescu, Isaac Newton Group and Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias,
Spain; T. Wilson, Isaac Newton Group and University College, London; T.
Zegmott, Isaac Newton Group and University of Kent; and P. Pravec, Ondrejov
Observatory, report that photometric observations taken within the "European
Near Earth Asteroids Research" (EURONEAR) program with the 2.5-m Isaac
Newton Telescope and the 1.2-m Mercator telescope hosted at Roque de los
Muchachos Observatory (La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain) during Apr. 26-May 6
reveal that minor planet (15745) is a binary system with an orbital period
of 15.63 +/- 0.02 hr.  The primary shows a period of 3.2486 +/- 0.0003 hr
and has a lightcurve amplitude of 0.10 mag at solar phases 35.1-35.2 degrees,
suggesting a nearly spheroidal shape.  Mutual eclipse/occultation events that
are 0.15- to 0.21-magnitude deep indicate a lower limit on the secondary-
to-primary mean-diameter ratio of 0.43.
