2015 QL_14
     S. S. Sheppard, Carnegie Institution for Science, Washington, DC; and
C. Trujillo, Northern Arizona University, report the discovery of a
satellite to the trans-Neptunian minor planet 2015 QL_14.  CCD r-band images
from the 6.5-m Magellan telescope show two components that are 1".7 apart
on 2017 Nov. 22 and 23 UT at position angle 193 degrees.  The two
components have a magnitude difference of about 0.2 magnitude in the r band,
with the brighter component at mag about 23.2.
