73059 Kaunas           Discovered 2002 Mar. 16 by K. Cernis and J. Zdanavicius at Moletai Astronomical Observatory.
With its 400 000 inhabitants, Kaunas is the second largest town in Lithuania. It is situated at the confluence of the two largest Lithuanian rivers---the Neris and the Nemunas. Kaunas was first mentioned in written sources in 1361. It was fated to become the temporary capital of Lithuania during 1919--1940.
