475 Ocllo is a large Mars-crossing asteroid.[2] It was discovered by American astronomer DeLisle Stewart on August 14, 1901 and assigned a provisional name of 1901 HN.[5][6]

Photometric observations of this asteroid at the Organ Mesa Observatory in Las Cruces, New Mexico during 2010 gave a light curve with a period of 7.3151 ± 0.0002 hours and a brightness variation of 0.66 ± 0.04 in magnitude.[4]
