1985 JK. Discovered 1985 May 15 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named in honor of Robert Gonczi (1945- ), a French dynamicist who has carried out important research on the dynamics of minor planets, in particular by developing new numerical techniques to explore the role of resonances and chaotic effects. Gonczi has also studied the dynamical evolution of comets, the delivery of meteorites and the interaction between resonances and Poynting-Robertson drag for orbiting particles. (M 35489)
