259387 Atauta           Discovered 2003 May 25 by A. Sota at Sierra Nevada.
Atauta is a very small Spanish town located in the province of Soria, famous for the production of high-quality Ribera del Duero wine. Far away from big cities, its exceptionally dark skies are favorable for stargazing. The discoverer has ancestors from Atauta dating back to at least the sixteenth century.
