Asteroid 4415, Echnaton, was discovered on September 24, 1960 by C.J. Van Houten and Ingrid Van Houten-Groeneveld at Palomar Observatory near Pauma Valley, California. It has a period of 3 years, 210 days.

Echnaton was named for 14th century BCE pharaoh Echnaton or Akhenaten, who attempted to replace the ancient worship of the pantheon of Egyptian gods with a monotheistic belief in the god Aten.


Astrologically, Echnaton seems to indicate doctrinaire, dogmatic, forcing on others what they don't want, intransigent, visionary.

The glyph for Echnaton is mine.
