A recently spotted asteroid near Venus, named by the Pauma Indians

An Indian tribe in present-day California named a unique asteroid at the request of scientists who discovered it.

Two years ago, astronomers operating the Zwicky Transition Facility (ZTF) discovered the first known asteroid to orbit the sun in the orbit of Venus. But so far it has only been known as the 2020 AV2.
