(1230) Riceia

Template: Infobox Asteroid / Maintenance / Error 1

(1230 ) Riceia is an asteroid of the main belt, which was discovered on 9 October 1931 in Heidelberg by the German astronomer Karl Wilhelm Reinmuth.

The name of the asteroid is derived from the U.S. amateur astronomer Hugh Rice.

The initials of the asteroid with the numbers 1227 to 1234, all of which were discovered by Reinmuth, together form G STRACKE, the name of the German astronomer and estimator of asteroid orbits Gustav Stracke, who asked that after him no asteroid should be appointed (see there).
