How to go to layer of currently selected object in Illustrator?

Say there are hundreds of unnamed layers in an Illustrator artboard. How do you just click one of those objects and reveal what layer it is on? And change to that layer?

Click on your object on the artbord, then at the bottom of layers panel click on magnifying glass icon ('Locate object'). That's it. I also can't help pointing out how dumb the other commenters are. Did they even read the question?
