Robert Pattinson: Inspiration for Newly Named Asteroid

Posted Thursday February 20, 2014 3:17 PM GMT

It’s another day of work for hunky actor Robert Pattinson as he continued to shoot scenes for “Life” in Toronto, Canada on Thursday (February 20).

The “Twilight” star parted his darker locks to the side and donned a bomber jacket with dress pants as he hopped into a van to start filming the new project.

In related news, one of Robert’s many admirers happens to be an amateur astronomer. The Russian-native named a newly discovered asteroid after Pattinson.

According to reports, the 1.4-mile wide space rock was officially named 246789 Pattinson in a registry published Wednesday (February 19) by the International Astronomical Union after being spotted by Timur Kryachko.
