Asteroid 3103, Eger, an Apollo object, was discovered on January 20, 1982 by Miklos Lovas at Piszkesteto Observatory near Mátraszentimre, Heves, Hungary. It has a period of 1 years, 243 days and is 1.5 kilometer in diameter.

It was named for the Hungarian city of Eger, known for an observatory associated with a university there and for resisting a 16th-century Turkish attack.

The astrological meaning of asteroid Eger seems to be what its name might suggest: eager, eagerness.
