Ocllo (minor planet designation: 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]
