The Committee of Small Objects Nomenclature of the International Astronomical Union gave astronomers authorization to name the asteroid identified with the number 1995 SG5 as Qoyllurwasi in honor of Perú.

Qoyllurwasi means house of the stars in Quechua language, where qoyllur means star and wasi is house.

The asteroid was discovered on September 20, 1995 and it has just been named.

On Twitter, Jois Koo (@joiskoo) [es] refered to the asteroid's shape:

@elcomercio #Qoyllurwasi Has the shape of a French bread :D :P

The bread known in Peru as French bread has a very particular shape that can be seen here.
