Asteroid 3351, Smith, was discovered on September 7, 1980, by Edward Bowell at the Anderson Mesa unit of Lowell Observatory near Flagstaff, Arizona.It has a period of 5 years, 113 days.

It was named after American astronaut Michael J. Smith (1945-1986), who piloted the Challenger on its last, doomed mission.

Astrologically, Smith seems to indicate "a break" (Damien Foor); to craft or fabricate, "regular person," desire for anonymity or privacy, to shatter, to conceal.

The glyph for Smith is mine.
