2013 FS28, is a trans-Neptunian object discovered by Cerro Tololo Observatory at La Serena on March 16, 2013.

It is one a small number of detached objects with perihelion distances of 30 AUs or more, and semi-major axes of 150 AU or more.[1] Such objects can not reach such orbits without some perturbing object, which lead to the speculation of planet nine.
