1985 RS4. Discovered 1985 Sept. 14 by H. Debehogne at La Silla.

Named in honor of Jozef Denoyelle (1937- ) on the occasion of his retirement from the Uccle {see planet (1276)} Observatory. His principal research concerned early-type stars and their relation to galactic structure. Early in his career he observed minor planets and comets, and his continuing interest in such work stimulated the discoverer to start observations at La Silla. Denoyelle is very active in the popularization of astronomy and has served as treasurer of the Flemish Association of Astronomy for some 20 years. (M 30095)
