665 Sabine is a minor planet orbiting the Sun that was discovered by German astronomer Wilhelm Lorenz on July 22, 1908.[4]

Photometric observations of this asteroid at the Oakley Observatory in Terre Haute, Indiana during 2006 gave a light curve with a period of 4.294 ± 0.001 hours and a brightness variation of 0.50 ± 0.04 in magnitude.[5]
