25000 Astrometria

This minor planet is named after the scientific field of astrometry. This field is a subset of observational astronomy that uses very precise measurements of celestial bodies to learn more about our Solar System and our galaxy. It also happens to be the field concerned with the discovery and observation of small Solar System bodies such as minor planets.

The symbol of this minor planet is similar to the symbol of 376 Geometria. It is a celestial sphere, represented as a large circle with an asteroidal star in the middle, with a measuring stick on top.
