Morris

1986 TW1. Discovered 1986 Oct. 7 by E. Bowell at Anderson Mesa.

Named for Charles S. Morris, one of the foremost visual observers of comets. In addition to making more than 1,200 photometric observations of more than 90 comets, he made a rare visual recovery of P/Faye in 1983, and he has been most helpful in confirming newly discovered comets at the request of the Central Bureau for Astronomical Telegrams. He has done much analytical work with visual magnitude data and has contributed extensively to the development of the International Comet Quarterly, of which he is associate editor, and its photometric archive.
