1934 RB. Discovered 1934 Sept. 2 by E. Delporte at Uccle.

Named in honor of Odon Godart (1913-1996), Belgian mathematician who published distinguished papers on cosmic rays, theoretical and applied meteorology and cosmology. He was a professor at the Catholic University of Louvain and worked in the team of Georges Lemaitre {see planet (1565)}. His main contribution was the introduction of isobaric coordinates in meteorology (1942), and this generated new developments in applied meteorology. He served as president of the Belgian Society for Astronomy, Meteorology and Physics of the Earth. (M 27736)
