4832 Palinurus (1988 TU1) is a Jupiter Trojan discovered on October 12, 1988 by C. S. Shoemaker at Palomar.

Photometric observations of this asteroid during 2010 were used to build a light curve showing a rotation period of 5.319 ± 0.002 hours with a brightness variation of 0.09 ± 0.02 magnitude.[2]
