10819 Mahakala           Discovered 1993 Apr. 19 by J. DeYoung at the U.S. Naval Observatory, Washington.
Mahakala, or "Great Time", is one of the destructive aspects of Shiva in Vedic Hinduism, time being seen as the destroyer of all things. The naming also honors the long history of the U.S. Naval Observatory Time Service and its fundamental involvement in all scales of timekeeping from astronomical time to atomic time.
