9908 Aue is a main belt asteroid. It orbits the Sun once every 4.94 years.[1] It has been identified as a member of the Koronis family of asteroids.[3]

Discovered on March 25, 1971 by Cornelis Johannes van Houten and Ingrid van Houten-Groeneveld on photographic plates taken by Tom Gehrels at the Palomar Observatory using the Samuel Oschin telescope, it was given the provisional designation "2140 T-1". It was later renamed "Aue" after Hartmann von Aue, a German poet and participant in the Third Crusade.[4]
