Named by the discoverer for the Egyptian sun-god Ra, who symbolizes enlightenment and life, and for Shalom, the traditional Hebrew greeting meaning peace. This name is chosen to commemorate the Camp David mid-east peace conference, at which time this unusual body was found. May it stand as a symbol for the universal hope for peace. (M 4548)

Discovered on 10-9-1978 in Palomar by Helin, E. F.
