Mark – I did a search for a suitable asteroid candidate but only came up with 321 Florentina 15th magnitude P=2.87 h  Ampl.=0.31-0.52 mag. So there would be a minimum every 1.5 hours or so.

This doesn’t really become accessible until late September / early October. It reaches opposition in December at mag 13.8.
