Discovered 2005 May 3 by the Catalina Sky Survey.
Constance L. Martin-Trembley (b. 1962) has been a beloved and inspirational science teacher for over a decade. Connie has organized educational trips, run an after school book club and science club, and has a passion for astronomy. She was awarded Teacher of the year for her district in 2007.
Connie taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade advanced science at Endeavour Middle School for years, before being moved to 3rd grade; she continually has former students visit her in her classroom to tell her how much FUN her science class was, and how much they appreciated how she had urged them towards achieving their goals.
Asteroid (117852) Constance, formerly designated 2005 JG151, is 2-5km in diameter, and is not likely to be even remotely spherical. An asteroid’s size is implicit from its absolute magnitude (H) see: Absolute Magnitude Table.
It is in a stable, nearly circular but inclined orbit within the main asteroid belt; it is not a Near-Earth Asteroid, or a Potentially-Hazardous Asteroid. (People keep asking us that for some reason…)
