12079 Kaibab           Discovered 1998 Mar. 22 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
The Kaibab Formation is a massive limestone layer of Permian age that forms the bedrock of much of Northern Arizona. The word comes from the Paiute Indian word, meaning "mountain lying on its side" and refers to the Kaibab Plateau.
