1990 KK. Discovered 1990 May 21 by E. F. Helin at Palomar.

Named in honor of Janis L. Konke, space advocate and good friend of the discoverer. Born in Wisconsin and educated in Minnesota and Illinois, she has pursued a career in psychology, studying human capabilities and desires. Inspired by a friend and the starry skies of Palomar Mountain, she developed an interest in space travel and exploration, believing that humankind's greatest adventure is in the heavens. Thus began her enthusiastic support for the discoverer's Deep Solar System Survey. (M 25978)
