1179 Mally is an asteroid that was discovered by Max Wolf on March 19, 1931, and given the provisional designation 1931 FD.<ref name="MPC" /> It was named after the discoverer's daughter-in-law. It became a lost asteroid for 55 years after its initial discovery. In 1986, Mally was rediscovered by Lutz D. Schmadel, Richard Martin West and Hans-Emil Schuster, who remeasured the original discovery plates and computed alternative search ephemerides. This allowed them to find the body very near to its predicted position. In addition, historic photographic plates from the Palomar Sky Survey (1956–1958), the UK Schmidt Telescope (Australia), and the ESO Schmidt Telescope (Chile) confirmed the rediscovery.<ref name="cbat-IAUC-4278" /><ref name="eso8611" /><ref name="Schmadel" />
