(87269) 2000 OO67 (also written (87269) 2000 OO67) is a small trans-Neptunian object (TNO) discovered by the Deep Ecliptic Survey in 2000. It is remarkable for its highly eccentric orbit. At aphelion it is over 1,000 AU from the Sun and, with a perihelion of 21 AU, almost crosses the orbit of Uranus at closest approach. Some astronomers list it as a centaur.
(87269) 2000 OO67 came to perihelion in April 2005.
Both (87269) 2000 OO67 and 2006 SQ372 take longer than Sedna to orbit the Sun using either heliocentric coordinates or barycentric coordinates.
