799 Gudula is a minor planet orbiting the Sun discovered by German astronomer Karl Wilhelm Reinmuth on March 9, 1915 at the Heidelberg observatory.[2]

Photometric observations of this asteroid at the Oakley Observatory in Terre Haute, Indiana during 2006 gave a light curve with a period of 14.814 ± 0.003 hours and a brightness variation of 0.30 ± 0.03 in magnitude.[3]
