233943 Falera           Discovered 2009 Nov. 21 by J. De Queiroz at Sternwarte Mirasteilas, Falera.
Falera, a municipality in the district of Surselva in the Swiss canton of Graubünden, has a rich culture and history. In 1800 B.C., a settlement was started on the Mutta. This came during the Bronze Age and was very significant in the early development of what today is Switzerland. Falera is the hometown of the discoverer.
