1911 Schubart (1973 UD) is an outer main-belt asteroid discovered on October 25, 1973 by Paul Wild at Zimmerwald.[1]

At 80km in diameter[1] it is one of the largest objects in the Hilda 3:2 orbital resonance with Jupiter, and is the main object of the Schubart family, a group of asteroids with related orbits believed to have formed from collisions of larger asteroids.[2] It is the darkest P-type asteroid with an albedo of 0.0249.[1]
