1985 TD. Discovered 1985 Oct. 15 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named in honor of Belgian mathematician Anne Lemaitre (1957- ) for her pioneering analytic studies of the dynamics of minor planets in mean-motion resonances. She has also investigated the process of adiabatic capture into resonance, and has computed accurate proper elements for objects with large orbital eccentricities and inclinations. (M 35485)
