Asteroid 3422, Reid, was discovered on July 28, 1978, by Brian Stewart and Chris Pratt in Perth, Western Australia, Australia. It has a period of 4 years, 152 days.

It was named for Gordon Reid (1923-1989), an Australian political science professor and university official who once served as governor of the Australian state of Western Australia, and his wife Ruth Reid, an advocate for the disabled and disadvantaged.

Astrologically, asteroid Reid seems to indicate pliability, humility, yielding (like a reed), reeds, reediness.

The glyph for Reid is mine.
