Asteroid 39428, Emilybrontė, was discovered on September 29, 1973 by C. J. van Houten and Ingrid van Houten-Groeneveld on photographic plates taken by Tom Gehrels at Palomar Observatory near Pauma Valley, California. It has a period of 3 years, 321 days.

It was named for British writer Emily Brontė (1818-1848), part of the great Brontė literary family that also included her sisters Charlotte and Anne. Emily was the author of Wuthering Heights.
