Asteroid 6489 Golevka was named to honor the success of the multinational radar observations by Russia, Japan and the United States of America in June, 1995, its name is taken from the lead letters of each of the observation antennas Goldstone-Evpatoria-Kashima. Asteroid 6489 was discovered by Eleanor Helin at Mt. Palomar Observatory on May 10, 1991. Goldstone radar imaging reveals Golevka's shape as extraordinarily angular, with flat sides, sharp edges and corners, and peculiar concavities. Apparently a monolithic collision fragment about 530 meters in average overall dimension, Golevka rotates once every 6.0 hours.
