1976 UTi. Discovered 1976 Oct. 26 by T. M. Smirnova at Nauchnyj.

Named in honor of Tamara Sergeevna Belyakina (1934- ), astrophysicist and stellar photometrist who worked at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory from 1955 to 1990. She is known for her multicolor photometric observations of symbiotic stars. She first discovered nonradial pulsations of red giants in such systems and proposed the interpretation of this phenomenon. (M 32350)
