13032 Tarn           Discovered 1989 Oct. 7 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
The Tarn, a 375-km-long river in southern France, has its source on the 1550-m-high Lozère montain in the Cévennes. Famous for its brutal and dangerous flooding, the Tarn is particularly appreciated for its beautiful gorges and canyons.
