2005 TN74 (also written2005 TN74) is a possible Trojanasteroid of Neptune which was discovered by Scott S. Sheppard and Chadwick A. Trujillo in 2005. Only two others are known: 2001 QR322 and 2004 UP10. They have the same orbital period as Neptune and orbit at the L4Lagrangian point about 60 degrees ahead of Neptune.
