530 Turandot is a minor planet orbiting the Sun that was discovered by German astronomer Max Wolf on April 11, 1904 and named for the title character in Puccini's opera.

Photometric observations of this asteroid in 1986 gave a light curve with a period of 10.77 ± 0.03 hours and a brightness variation of 0.13 ± 0.02 in magnitude. The curve is asymmetrical with dual maxima and minima. This object has a spectrum that matches an F-type classification.[2]
