Named for acrocephalus arundinaceus, or great reed warbler.

Named for Acrocephalus arundinaceus, or great reed warbler. {It belongs to the family of the Sylviidae and is on the Dutch Red List of birds endangered in the Netherlands.} (M 33792; M 34089)

The first letters of the names of minor planets  (8585) to  (8600) result in the well-known Latin motto “per aspera ad astra” {Through difficulties to the Stars}. This arrangement by L. D. Schmadel remained unnoticed after the publication of the new names in MPC itself.

Discovered on 30-9-1973 in Palomar by van Houten, C. J., van Houten-Groeneveld, I., Gehr
