1994 RK1. Discovered 1994 Sept. 5 by A. Boattini and M. Tombelli at Cima Ekar.

Named in honor of Giuseppe (Beppe) Forti, astronomer at the Arcetri Observatory in Florence. His encouragement and advice continuously help the discoverers to refine their observational work. Forti was trained as a solar physicist and worked for six years with the Harvard-Smithsonian Radio Meteor Project from 1965. He has done some work on nongravitational forces acting on comets and now has interests in the dynamics of minor planets. (M 27129)
