Asteroid 4709, Ennomos, a Jupiter Trojan, was discovered on October 12, 1988 by Carolyn Shoemaker at Palomar Observatory. It has a period of 11 years, 339 days and is a little over 60 miles in diameter.

It was named for a Trojan warrior; Ennomos was a prophet and a practitioner of ornithomancy (divination by reading the flight of birds). He was killed by Achilles.

Astrologically, asteroid Ennomos seems to have to do with birds or avian behavior, "seeing the signs," divination.

The glyph for Ennomos is mine.
