13033 Gardon           Discovered 1989 Oct. 7 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
The Gardon (or Gard) is a river in southern France. It rises in the mountains of the Cévennes. After passing the cities of Saint Jean and Alès in the Gard département, the river ends its 133-km journey at the Rhône. A Roman aqueduct crosses the river at Pont du Gard.
