Haumea is a Kuiper Belt plutoid which are a class of dwarf planets similar to Pluto. It has a long elliptical orbit which is inclined relative to Earth's orbit. It is on average much further from the sun than even Pluto is though for part of it's orbit it passes inside Pluto's orbit.

Haumea appears very bright, since 65-80% of its surface is covered in crystalline water ice. The rest is probably rocky. A large dark red area was seen in September 2009, possibly a large crater or other impact feature. In shape, it is ellipsoidal, resembling a rugby ball or an American football.

The people who have been the closest to Haumea were the Apollo astronauts in orbit around the moon. At about 250,000 miles further out from the Earth, this distance is insignificant, since Haumea is over fifty times the distance from the Sun than Earth orbits at.

With our current spacecraft technology, getting a small probe out to the Kuiper Belt to visit a dwarf planet such as Haumea would take at least ten years. As technology improves spacecraft will get faster and more efficient, decreasing travel time, but until then it would take quite a long time.
