Mirtubir: Murikabushi ("a swarm of stars" in the Okinawa dialect) is the name of the 1.05-m infrared-optical telescope at the Ishigakijima Astronomical Observatory. Following a period of great privation and misery after World War I, he was invited by Edwin B. Frost to come to the Yerkes Observatory in 1921. The Spanish spelling of martyr, this name is also assigned as an homage to Eva Peron.
