Asteroid 1450, Raimonda, was discovered on February 20, 1938 by Yrjo Vaisala at Turku, Finland. It has a period of 4 years, 81 days and is slightly less than 11 1/2 miles in diameter.

It was named for Dutch astronomer Jean Jacques Raimond, Jr. (1903-1961), president of the Dutch Astronomical Society and director of the Zeiss Planetarium, the first planetarium built outside Germany.

Astrologically, asteroid Raimonda seems to indicate to persevere despite obstacles, assertion resulting in a backlash.
