Makemake, minor-planet designation 136472 Makemake, is a dwarf planet, discovered on March 31, 2005 by astronomers Michael E. Brown, Chad Trujillo, and David Rabinowitz. It was announced as a dwarf planet on June 11, 2008. A moon orbiting Makemake was discovered on April 26, 2016. It has not received a name yet, so as of now, it is temporary named S/2015 (136472) 1.
Originally, the object was given a codename 'Easterbunny', as it was discovered shortly after Easter. The International Astronomical Union gave it the name Makemake, the creator god of the ancient Easter Island people, to keep its connection with Easter.
Makemake appears to be made mainly of ice and rock. However, at its very low temperature, ice is as hard as many types of rock.
