38628 Huya (original provisional designation: 2000 EB173) is a trans-Neptunian object. It was discovered in 2000 by Ignacio Ferrin. It is classified as a plutino. It is named after the South American god Huya. March 10 is the 69th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (70th in Leap years). ... This article is about the year 2000. ... The provisional designation of comets and asteroids are similar to each other: they both follow a pattern set in 1925 by the Minor Planet Center of the IAU.

Minor planets, or planetoids are minor bodies of the solar system orbiting the sun that are larger than meteoroids (the largest of which might be taken to be around 10 meters or so across) but smaller than major planets (Mercury having a diameter of about 4880 km). ... A trans-Neptunian object (TNO) is any object in the solar system with all or most of its orbit beyond that of Neptune. ... In astronomy, an epoch is a moment in time for which celestial coordinates or orbital elements are specified. ... January 30 is the 30th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar. ... a bust ... The Julian day or Julian day number (JDN) is the number of SI days that have elapsed since 12 noon Greenwich Mean Time (UT or TT) on Monday, January 1, 4713 BC in the proleptic Julian calendar 1. ...

The orbital period is the time it takes a planet (or another object) to make one full orbit. ... A year is the time between two recurrences of an event related to the orbit of the Earth around the Sun. ... The orbital speed of a body, generally a planet, a natural satellite, an artificial satellite, or a multiple star, is the speed at which it orbits around the barycenter of a system, usually around a more massive body. ... Inclination is one of the six orbital parameters describing the shape and orientation of a celestial orbit and is the angular distance of the orbital plane from the plane of the reference (usually planets equator or the ecliptic), stated in degrees. ... A degree (or in full a degree of arc), usually symbolized °, is a measurement of plane angle, representing 1/360 of a full rotation. ... The Longitude of the ascending node () is one of the orbital elements used to specify the orbit of an object in space. ... The argument of the perihelion is one of the orbital elements describing the orbit of a planet. ... In the study of orbital dynamics the mean anomaly is a measure of time, specific to the orbiting body p, which is a multiple of 2π radians at and only at periapsis. ...

38628 Huya (1078 words)
Huya also aspects Harris (snapping, being pushed too far or portraying oneself as having been pushed too far, a murderous rampage) and Samadhi (feeling, or not feeling, connected) within a 1 00' orb.
Adolf Eichmann had Huya semisextile Neptune (deception) and Askalaphus (to disclose, to publicize), sextile 2002 VQ94 (to shatter), Venus (values, outrage, diplomacy), Rhadamanthus (justice), and Antenor (seen as subversive); square Saturn (career, restrictions, consequences); quincunx Uranus (disruption, the unexpected, shattered molds); and opposite 1992 QB1 (to hold to one's beliefs).
Huya also is a member of another, interlocking grand trine that includes Nabokov and Neptune (the ideal, conspiracies, paranoia); also, Huya squares Varuna (judgmental, nurturing).

They proposed the name Huya (Juya with a little accent on the 'a') after the rain god of the Wayuu Indians who live on the arid Guajira Peninsula of northern Venezuela and Colombia.
Juya was god of rain; a warrior, hunter, seducer and inhabitant of "the place beyond the Sun." The lack of water is the biggest problem on the Guajira Peninsula and the locals hoped that Juya, god of the rains now recognized the world over, would perform the miracle of water.
It is interesting that Huya has two entirely different mythologies, a hint that in delineation, she may represent a point in the chart were there are two different expressions, both of which are true.
