University of Arizona's Catalina Sky Survey, a NASA-funded project surveying for near-Earth asteroids, submitted an asteroid citation for Ursula. Astronomer Gregory Leonard, who along with Rob Seaman advanced the citation, wrote to let us know that the International Astronomical Union approved of the citation: "Ursula now holds a special place in the heavens, as asteroid (181518) 'Ursulaleguin'."
