5027 Androgeos (1988 BX1) is a Jupiter Trojan discovered on January 21, 1988 by Shoemaker, C. S. at Palomar.

Photometric observations of this asteroid during 1992 were used to build a light curve showing a rotation period of 11.355 ± 0.013 hours with a brightness variation of 0.31 ± 0.01 magnitude.[2]
