Pik Sin Thé studied in the US, became director of Lembang Observatory, Indonesia, and later professor at the University of Amsterdam. His research interests focus on igneous processes that formed the martian meteorites.

Tjanor: Ceccano, where the discovery observations of this minor planet were made, is a small city, some 90 km southeast of Rome. He made idealized portraits of Napoleon and his family. By making a fire, he prevented the island from disappearing into the sea during the night.

Hechirin: Kristina Kürtiova (b. 1995) is a daughter of the discoverer. This work has been valuable for interpreting the meteoritic record of the early history of the solar system. He has identified numerous features in the spectra of comets, planets and interstellar material. He was also editor of the society's bulletin. He teaches at the Kastner Intermediate School, Fresno, California.

Wameas: Named by the discoverer in honor of Prof. He sang his rebellious songs in the local dialect of Antwerp, a choice that was not always appreciateid by the city's intelligentia. He is currently a member of the Tokyo Astronomical Association and Shimane Society of Astronomy.

Jackuir: Jack Kuipers (b. 1921), author of a text on quaternions, taught mathematics at Calvin College for 20 years after a 17-year engineering career in the aerospace industry. He has been a very active amateur astronomer all his lifetime and is well known for his great ability to communicate with the public. Named for the Kalmyk epics, which reflect the hopes, dreams, and struggles of the Kalmyk people.

Hiessanni: Patricia Ann ("Annie") Purnell Grauer (b. 1942), is an American photographer, cook, homemaker, writer and a student of the night sky.
