Sandy asteroid?

We’ve just had a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., not long after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the Eastern Seaboard. I don’t have time to do the work, but I’m wondering if there’s an asteroid named Sandy and if it’s traveling near the U.S. Sun. Astrodienst has a clever pull-down menu where one can look for asteroids.

  1. Been there. The closest I found is Sandra at almost 7 Capricorn. Ther is also Hooke at 3 Virgo, roughly opposite Neptune, and Lanzia at 30th degree squaring it.
