96205 Ararat           Discovered 1992 Sept. 24 by F. Börngen and L. D. Schmadel at Tautenburg.
The majestic Mt. Ararat, an extinct volcano with double cone-shaped peaks (altitudes 5165 and 3925 m), has been sung by poets from ancient times to our days. It is the highest mountain of the historical Armenia, now in Turkey. The name was proposed by the first discoverer.
