793 Arizona is a minor planet orbiting the Sun that was discovered in 1907 by American businessman Percival Lowell. It was named for the state of Arizona.

Photometric observations at the Palmer Divide Observatory in Colorado Springs, Colorado during the winter of 2007–2008 were used to build a light curve for this asteroid. The asteroid displayed a period of 7.367 ± 0.005 hours and a brightness change of 0.25 ± 0.02 in magnitude.[2]
