(53319) 1999 JM8

(53319) 1999 JM8 is a near-Earth asteroid discovered by LINEAR. Radar imaging by Goldstone and Arecibo has revealed the asteroid to be 3.5km in diameter. Like the asteroid 4179 Toutatis, its rotation speed is unusually slow and possibly chaotic. Its shape is bizarre, and is vaguely reminiscent of a roast chicken.
