Asteroid 567, Eleutheria, was discovered on May 28, 1905 by Paul Götz at Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. It has a period of 5 years, 199 days and is a little over 69½ miles in diameter.

Eleutheria was named after the Greek goddess of liberty.

Astrologically, Eleutheria seems to indicate what its namesake might suggest: freedom, liberation.

Nelson Mandela has Eleutheria in the fifth house of self-expression, semisquare Varuna (grown big, judgment), sextile Jupiter (philosophy, support from others, success), and quincunx Pallas (politics, defense of civilized values).

American patriot Thomas Paine (born January 29, 1737, in Thetford, Norfolk, England) had Eleutheria conjunct Asbolus (something to say which isn't necessarily listened to), trine Venus and Hylonome (the cry of the people, popular support), biquintile Mercury (ideas, writings) and quindecile Uranus (revolution).

Tennis star Martina Navratilova, who defected from communist Czechoslovakia to the US, has Eleutheria in the eleventh house, square Nessus (grabbing what one sees) and trine Ixion (second chances).

Beat author William Burroughs (born February 5, 1914, in St. Louis), whose novel Naked Lunch was the last novel ever banned in the US for obscenity before the Brennan Doctrine promulgated by the US Supreme Court effectively ended literary censorship, had Eleutheria semisextile Elatus, undecimal Dioretsa and Phaethon, sextile Neptune and Cruithne, quintile North Node (making connections, transcending past influences), square Hylonome, tredecile South Node (separation, past influences), trine Ceres, sesquiquadrate Pallas, and opposite Pholus.
