  2003 EL61
2003 EL61 is followed in its orbit around the sun by a swarm of icy bodies that were originally ejected from the surface of 2003 EL61 during the giant impact that led to all of the odd properties of this body.
The first moon to 2003 EL61 was discovered on January 28th 2005 by observations at the Keck Observatory.
While the odd characteristics of 2003 EL61 and its moons initially led us to the hypothesis of a giant impact, the smoking gun came when we found the other icy debris left over from the collision in orbits similar to 2003 EL61 itself.

  2003 UB313 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Claims that 2003 UB has been officially named "Xena" or "Lila" are incorrect; "Xena" is an informal codename used by its discoverers among themselves, and "Lila" is a name in the address of the website where the object was announced, after the newly-born daughter of one of the discoverers.
As 2003 UB is larger than Pluto, it was initially described as the "tenth planet" by NASA and in media reports of its discovery.
Methane is very volatile and its presence shows either that 2003 UB has always resided in the distant reaches of the solar system where it is cold enough for methane ice to persist, or that it has an internal source of methane to replenish gas that escapes from its atmosphere.
