8990 Compassion           Discovered 1980 Feb. 19 at the Klet Observatory.
Named by the Committee for Small-Body Nomenclature to honor the compassion of people around the world for the friends and families of the victims of disasters, exemplified by the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on 2001 Sept. 11, with the hope that they will overcome their sorrow.
