Physical characterization of NEA Large Super-Fast Rotator (436724) 2011 UW158.

Albino Carbognani, Bruce Gary, Julian Oey, Georgio Baj and Paolo Bacci

Collaborative observations of Near Earth Asteroid (436724) 2011 UW158 recently revealed that it was a superfast rotator asteroid. The extensive data and the light curves obtained spanning over wide Phase Angle range of 17 to 90 degrees allow us to derive an accurate H and G parameters and also shape of the asteroid. It was also consistent with RADAR observations at Goldstone and Green Bank telescopes.
