Figure 1: Upper panel: Varuna's magnitude versus time (days) from our observatios. Middle panel: our data and Jewitt & Sheppard's (2002) data phased to the period we propose. Our data are shown as plus signs and Jewitt & Sheppard's (2002) are shown as triangles. Lower panel: our data and Jewitt & Sheppard's (2002) data phased to the period proposed by Jewitt & Sheppard (2002). Our data are shown as plus signs and Jewitt & Sheppard's (2002) are shown as triangles. As can be seen, the data are not in phase, which implies that 6.3442 h is incorrect. | |

Figure 2: Upper panel: 1999 TD_{10} magnitude versus time (days). Lower panels: rotational phase curves for two possible periods, 7.71 h and 5.8 h, respectively. As can be seen, a period of 5.8 h does not yield an acceptable phase curve. Different symbols correspond to different dates. | |
