Partial light curves obtained with the Magellan-Baade telescope (upper plot) and with the DCT (lower plot). In both cases, 2004 MU8 displays a large amplitude in a few hours thus, it is a good candidate for likely contact binary. More data are required to obtain the full light curve and infer the nature of the object/system.
