Also named is (66652) I Pabu, discovered 2003 Apr. 23 by K. Noll, D. Stephens, W. Grundy and colleagues using the Hubble Space Telescope. Borasisi and Pabu are the mythical personifications of the sun and moon in the fictional cosmogony of Bokononism described in Kurt Vonnegut's novel Cat's Cradle: “Borasisi, the sun, held Pabu, the moon, in his arms and hoped that Pabu would bear him a fiery child. But poor Pabu gave birth to children that were cold, that did not burn... Then poor Pabu herself was cast away, and she went to live with her favorite child, which was Earth.”
