25000 Astrometria (1998 OW5) is a main-belt asteroid discovered on July 28, 1998 by Paul G. Comba at Prescott Observatory.[1] It is named after the technique of astrometry which is used to discover many minor planets.[6] The asteroid made its closest approach to earth at a distance of 1.912 AU on March 21, 2013.[7]
