(65489) Ceto, recover

(65489) Ceto is a scattered disc object discovered in March of 2003. It has a perihelion of 17.8 AU and an aphelion of 181.9 AU (scattered disc object with a very high aphelion and Uranus at the perihelion). There are prediscovery images back to May-March of 2002, March of 2001, April of 1998, April of 1996, February of 1995, February of 1991, March of 1988 and January of 1987.

In April of 2006, it was identified as a binary system, and named Ceto-Phorcys in November of 2006. The diameters are about 175 km and 135 km.

The perihelion is at 11º36' Leo (cuadrioncile aspect, 130º55'; 41' orb). It has an inclination of 22.3º, with the ascending node at 21º56' Virgo, whose argument of perihelion is equivalent to 19º40' Aquarius (nonile aspect, 40º; 20' orb).

Greek mythology

Ceto ("sea monster") is a primordial sea goddess in Greek mythology, the daughter of Gaia and Pontus. As a mythological figure, she is most notable for bearing by her husband Phorcys a host of monstrous children, collectively known as the Phorcydes. She was the personification of the dangers of the sea, unknown terrors and bizarre creatures. Phorcys is represented with a man's head, crab's claws and a fish tail.

In the manga-anime "Dragon Ball" (1986), when the seven dragon balls are reunited, they begin to sparkle and the dragon Shenron can be invoked, which allows to ask for a desire, that once conceded, the balls are again scattered around the world.

In the movie "Labyrinth" (1986), the adolescent Sarah (Jennyfer Connelly) wants her babybrother be taken by the King of the Goblins (David Bowie), but when he really disap
pears, she suffers a strong repelence and cames into the Labyrinth to find back her babybrother.
The main theme with (65489) Ceto is to get back something after a unwanted or involuntary separation (Uranus), like in the movie "Finding Nemo" (Pixar, 2003) and "Sinbad: The Legend of the Seven Seas" (2003).
