Asteroid 3199, Nefertiti, an Amor asteroid, was discovered on September 13, 1982 by Carolyn Shoemaker and Eugene M. Shoemaker at Palomar Observatory near Pauma Valley, California. It has a period of 1 year, 356 days and is about 1 2/3 mile in diameter.
It was named for Nefertiti (1370 BC?- 1330 BC?), who was the Great Royal Wife (chief consort) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten; they are known for their failed attempt to change Egypt's religion from a polytheistic one to a monotheistic one that worshipped Aten, the sun disc. Nefertiti was the mother of Tutankhamen and may have ruled briefly before his accession as Pharaoh and after her husband's death.
Astrologically, Nefertiti seems to indicate drawing power from or in relation to others.
