Makemake (meenor-planet designation 136472 Makemake, seembol: 🝼)[11] is a dwarf planet an aiblins the lairgest Kuiper belt object (KBO) in the clessical population,[a] with a diameter approximately two thirds that of Pluto.[16][17] Makemake haes ane kent satellite, S/2015 (136472) 1.[18] Makemake’s extremely law average temperatur, aboot 30 K (−243.2 °C), means its surface is covered wi methane, ethane, an possibly nitrogen ices.[13]

  1. a b Astronomers Mike Brown, David Jewitt an Marc Buie clwssify Makemake as a near scattered object but the Minor Planet Center, frae which Wikipaedia draws maist o its defineetions for the trans-Neptunian population, places it amang the main Kuiper belt population.[12][13][14][15]
