The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

2060 Chiron is a minor planet in the outer Solar System, orbiting between Saturn and Uranus. Discovered in 1977 by Charles T. Kowal (precovery images have been found as far back as 1895), it was the first-identified member of a new class of objects now known as centaurs (minor planets orbiting between the asteroid belt and the Kuiper belt). Furthermore, it is the second-known minor planet to have rings, after 10199 Chariklo, also a centaur.

Although it was initially called an asteroid and classified as a minor planet, it was later found to exhibit behavior typical of a comet. Today it is classified as both, and is accordingly also known by the cometary designation 95P/Chiron.

Chiron is named after the centaur Chiron in Greek mythology.

Mike Brown lists it as a possible dwarf planet with a measured diameter of 233 km.
