Who got an Asteroid named after them?

You know you will be remembered for all eternity when they name an astrological object in your honor.

I saw this tweet by J-List last night and had to post it here to share with everyone. It seems that Hideaki Anno got an asteriod named after him - talk about an honor. I really would of thaough a Star would of better suited him though. Still, a very nice thing to be done for someone.

For some background on Hideaki, he is most recently famous for being the director for Neon Genesis Evangelion. Before that he was an Animator for some great movies and shows like Macross, Gunbuster, Grave of the Fireflies and NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind.

Here is the a screen shot of the information on the Asteroid named 9081 Hideakianno.
