Bethellen

1983 CQ2. Discovered 1983 Feb. 15 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named in honor of Beth Ellen Clark (1964- ) on the occasion of the 1999 "Asteroids, Comets, Meteors meeting" at Cornell University. Clark served as the lead organizer of that meeting with dedication and an admirable combination of firm organization and style. Her Ph.D. thesis was on the mixing model analysis of spectra of minor planets to investigate space-weathering effects in relating these spectra to laboratory spectra of meteorites. She has been an associate member of the NEAR science team, and she has recently been appointed team leader for the near-infrared spectrometer to be flown aboard the MUSES-C spacecraft.
