364 Isara is an asteroid belonging to the Flora family in the Main Belt.[1] It was discovered by French astronomer Auguste Charlois on 19 March 1893 in Nice.[2]

In 2009, Photometric observations of this asteroid were made at the Palmer Divide Observatory in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The resulting asymmetrical light curve shows a synodic rotation period of 9.156 ± 0.001 hours with a brightness variation of 0.37 ± 0.02 in magnitude. This is consistent with the result of an independent study performed in 1965.[3]
