( 719) Albert is a asteroid from the Amor type, a group of asteroids whose orbits may cross Earth's path. Albert was discovered on October 3, 1911 by Johann Palisa at the Vienna University Observatory.

However, the asteroid was lost again and was only rediscovered in 2000 by scientists at the Spacewatch team of University of Arizona. Its size is estimated to be two to four kilometers. Albert approaches the Earth about every 30 years and can come near to 30 million kilometers of it.
