What is the appearance of Haumea?
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.
Haumea is sometimes known by its minor-planet designation, 136108 Haumea.
Yes, Haumea is a dwarf planet. Haumea is a dwarf planet. It is supposedly one third the size of pluto.
Hi`iaka and Namaka, two of the daughters of Haumea
Haumea has a mass of approximately 4.006 x 1021Kg
No. Haumea is not classified as a planet. It is a dwarf planet.
Yes, Haumea is a rocky, terrestrial planet.
It was named after Haumea, the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth.
One day on Haumea is 2 hours
At this time it is believed tha Haumea has no atmosphere.
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, so there would be no wind.
No. Haumea is a dwarf planet and in terms of composition is more similar to a comet.
As far as we know, there is no atmosphere on Haumea, meaning there is no weather and no storms.
As far as we know right now, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, meaning there are no hurricanes.
Haumea is a dwarf planet due to being an oval shape.
Haumea takes 283.28 years to orbit the Sun.
Haumea is ellipsoid in shape. In this way it is not unlike a rugby ball or an American football.
No, Haumea is a terrestrial planetoid. It is estimated to have one-third the mass of Pluto.
Haumea is a rocky, terrestrial dwarf planet.
It takes Haumea 3.9155 to complete one rotation.
Haumea was discovered by Michael E. Brown and José Luis Ortiz Moreno in 2005.
Haumea was nicknamed "Santa" because it was discovered shortly after Christmas by Mike Brown.
Haumea weighs (4.006 ± 0.040) x 1021 kg, or about 0.00066 Earths.
Haumea orbits between 34.952 and 51.483 AU from the Sun.
It takes Haumea 284.12 Earth-years to complete its orbit of the sun.
No. No there isn't.
The surface gravity on Haumea is about 0.63m/s^2, which is between one fifteenth and one sixteenth that of Earth.
Like all dwarf planets, Haumea is significantly smaller than Earth.
A day on Haumea is just 3.9155 hours. A year is equal to 284.12 Earth-years.
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, so the wind speed would effectively be zero.
Haumea has a gravitational pull of 0.63m/s2, or between one fifteenth and one sixteenth that of Earth.
A 100 pound man on earth is 10.20401kg. The gravitational acceleration on Haumea is .44m/s^2 so that person would weigh 4.4897956 pounds on Haumea.

Haumea has a gravitational pull of just 0.63m/s2, which is between one fifteenth and one sixteenth of that of Earth.
no unfortunately it does not have rings
Ceres has no known natural satellites. Haumea has two known moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka.
A day on Haumea is very short compared to here on Earth. Haumea's rotational period is just 3.9155 hours.
Haumea is named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. The names of its two moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka, also have their origins in Hawaiian mythology.
As far as we know, Haumea does not have an atmosphere, though future advances in telescopes or probes may yet provide a definitive answer.
A 100 pound person would weigh 4.4852 pounds on Haumea. Flipping things around, if someone weighed 100 pounds on Haumea, they would weigh 2,229.5455 pounds on Earth.
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.
Haumea is named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. Its two known moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka, are also named after characters in Hawaiian mythology.

As far as we know, yes it is.
Haumea likely formed very early in the Solar System's development. Astronomers estimate it has been in its present form for at least a billion years.
Haumea is one of the newly-discovered Kuiper Belt Objects out beyond the orbit of Neptune. It has a perihelion distance of about 35 AU.
The surface of Haumea is chiefly crystalline water ice. Recent models suggest that 66-80% of its surface is covered in it, with the rest being rocky.
the diameter of Haumea no one really knows put they estimated it would be 350 km or 217.48 miles. Bold= done by user 2
Haumea makes a complete rotation in just 3.9155 hours, making its day very short compared to Earth's.
Of note, first, Haumea is a dwarf planet, not a planet. Although very little is known about its surface, it is highly unlikely that it has any volcanoes.
Haumea is named after the Hawaiian goddess of childbirth. The names of its two known moons, Hi'iaka and Namaka, also have their origins in the Hawaiian pantheon.
