Asteroid 6489 Golevka, an Apollo object, was discovered on May 10, 1991 by Eleanor F. "Glo" Helin at Palomar Observatory near Pauma Mountain, California. It has a period of 3 years, 347 days and is 0.53 kilometers (2/5 of a mile) in diameter.

The name of this asteroid combines the names of three radio observatories involved in the successful radar study of it in 1995: the Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex near Barstow, California; Evpatoria, Ukraine, site of the Yevpatoria radio telescope; and Kashima, Ibaraki, Japan.

Its astrological meaning seems to be to study from a distance (physical or psychological).
