1985 PB. Discovered 1985 Aug. 14 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named in honor ofAntonio Crespo, electrical engineer at the Arecibo {see planet (4337)} Observatory. For more than a decade, Crespo has been singularly responsible for maintaining the operational capability of the high-power transmitter used for all Arecibo planetary radar astronomy observations. The transmitter system is extremely complex; its outstanding performance throughout the 1980s is a credit to Crespo's expertise and hard work. (M 16446)
