703 Noëmi is a minor planet orbiting the Sun.

Introduction[edit]

It is an asteroid discovered by Johann Palisa on October 3, 1910, with an estimated diameter of 13 km. It was named for Baroness Valentine Noémi von Rothschild (1886–1969) to celebrate her engagement to Baron Sigismund von Springer (1873–1927). Noémi von Rothschild's father, Baron Rothschild, had recently donated a stereocomparator to the Vienna Observatory.[1]
