Asteroid 7707, Yes, was discovered on April 17, 1993 by C. W. Hergenrother at Stewart Observatory Catalina Station northeast of Tucson, Arizona. It has a period of 4 years, 119 days.

It was named for the veteran British progressive rock band Yes, formed in 1968, which was responsible for classic-rock staples such as "Roundabout," "I've Seen All Good People", "Yours Is No Disgrace," "Long Distance Runaround," and "Starship Trooper."

It seems, though, that generally the meaning of asteroid Yes is what its name would suggest: yes, as Henk Middleraad has pointed out. He also created the glyph for this asteroid.
